“Dan did a great job of a very large painting at our home in Wales.  No doubt we will all hear a lot more about him in the years to come”.

 – William Hague


Painting from life is an essential part of Daniel’s working method, one that remains unchanged since the renaissance.  Commissioning a portrait becomes an interactive journey between model and artist that will see your artwork revealed one brush stroke at a time. The finished piece not only becoming a unique part of your collection, but also createing a personal story that can be past on through generations.  For studio visits please contact Daniel directly.


Daniel’s outdoor works are largely inspired by exploration and light.  Working en plein air he enjoys all the challenges & rewards of reaching unique locations and painting in the elements.  Requesting a landscape commission means you become a part of the creative process.
