“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”.

 – Lord Hague of Richmond

An acclaimed, contemporary artist with a traditional training at the internationally renowned Charles H. Cecil studios in Florence.

In 2019 Daniel’s ‘Self portrait No.3’ was added to the public collection at the National Library of Wales and his painting of Tim was shortlisted for the Jackson’s Art Award.  Various portraits have previously been shortlisted by the Royal Society of Portrait painters and in 2021 Daniel was made a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy.  Daniel enjoys painting from life and his technique for portraiture is one that has remained somewhat unchanged since the Renaissance. Daniel’s originality and creative project ideas give his work a unique style.  As well as specialising in portraiture and figurative painting Daniel spends much of his time travelling and painting plein air works, some of which hang in collections throughout Europe, Asia and America.

PORTRAIT COMMISSIONS

Commissioning a portrait is the beginning of an interactive journey between model and artist. Painting from life an essential part of Daniel’s approach to working that sees your artwork revealed one brush stroke at a time.  The time taken in the studio translates into a unique work of art for your collection.  It also tells a personal story to be passed on through the generations.

LANDSCAPE PAINTING

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. Sharing ideas, stories & knowledge of local areas is important inspiration for the artist to work with.  Feel free to get in touch with Daniel today with an idea.
