(1956 -


Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Dan developed an interest in art at an early age. He spent so much time drawing horses, rabbits and raccoons that, in an effort to conserve paper, his parents gave him a chalk board.

Dan's interest in Impressionism began during high school art classes, when he felt a particular affinity for the art of Claude Monet. He was also attracted to the art of Andrew Wyeth, whose style became a major influence on Dan's later work.

In 1991, Dan was elected a member of the Society of Animal Artists. At the opening of the Society's 32nd Annual ART AND THE ANIMAL exhibit at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown, New York, Dan was awarded the Award of Excellence, the Society's Highest honor. While presenting the award, Dr. Douglas Lewis, curator of sculpture and decorative arts at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D. C., complimented Dan by referring to his painting " The Waiting Game" as one of the finest wildlife paintings he'd ever seen.

Dan lives with his wife Susan in a high mountain valley just outside Rocky Mountain National Park in north central Colorado.
