Creativity for me is not only finding a unique way of expressing yourself, but also the ability to view things in a different light.

I grew up in Vacaville, California. It’s OK if you don’t know where that is, most people don’t… After living and working in Germany for many years, I moved to Halifax and then Montreal in Canada.Dan-drawing

In California, I attended Solano College where I received an Associate Arts Degree in Commercial Art. After working at creating portraits and designing graphics for a computer gaming company in California, I moved to Karlsruhe, Germany.

In Germany, I was a partner in an internet service providing (ISP) company. As head of the design department, I created promotional material, web sites and corporate graphics. I became proficient at designing web sites by typing out the HTML code (a time before WordPress & Dreamweaver)… I created web sites that worked. After eight years of developing web based graphics and countless professional and user friendly web sites, (some of which, many years later, are still online), I moved with my Canadian wife and daughter to Halifax, Nova Scotia then to Montreal, Quebec.

In 2010, I started DC Art & Design and haven’t looked back.  I enjoy working full time at my art, creating pencil and charcoal drawings, acrylic paintings, business and personal logos, and websites.  My studio in Halifax was open to the public, but now I’m working on opening my new studio & gallery in Montreal.  Just give me a call if you are interested in having a portrait created or would like one of my original paintings or print.  902.497.2067 or 514.978.2067

Throughout all the years, one form of art or the other has been a part of who I am. Allow me to create a piece of art for your life.
