Originally from Montreal, Dan has lived in Toronto with his wife and family for several years. A representational painter -- he works in acrylic, oil, and watercolor -- Dan draws inspiration from the impressionists and American painters Homer, Hopper, and Wyeth.
Dan's subjects are frequently cityscapes of west end Toronto, the Beach and urban-industrial scenes of harbours, railyards, factories, and people at work in them. His regional landscapes cover southwestern and eastern Ontario, the Algonquin dome, Quebec and the Maritimes. He paints out of doors whenever he can, reserving his studio for sustained pieces.
Dan has studied, and continues to paint with a number of Canadian and Toronto-based artists. He has exhibited with the Bloor West Art Tour and his work has appeared in Quattro, an exhibition held at Toronto's Gladstone Hotel and at The Loft Gallery, in Clarksburg Ontario.
