About the artist

Daniel J. Yeomans


Daniel J. Yeomans was born in Bedford 1986,  and spent his childhood living just below the Malvern hills, nearly always with a pencil in hand, and it was probably also here, that his love for nature and the outdoors began. Then moving to the Midlands and studying Art at college, along with Design & Media . A fascination for travel impelled a move to the Swiss Alps, aged 20, to live and work where he remained for 5 years, until eventually deciding to pursue his career as an artist.  He studied at the Charles H. Cecil Studios in Florence, where he trained using a technique known as ‘sight-size’ favoured by many of the masters such as Velasquez & Van Dyck. In his 2nd year Daniel received a scholarship and spent another year as a teacher/studio assistant whilst continuing his studies.  In-keeping with his training, Daniel continues to paint directly from life under natural light, and has a purpose built studio in the Welsh countryside, Montgomeryshire. Accepting commissions all over has expanded Daniel’s following and his works now hang in private, and public collections throughout Europe, Asia & America.  As well as enjoying landscape painting, Daniel also offers private studio tuition or group workshops for ‘Plein air’ painting.
