With over four decades of refining and nurturing his expertise as a fine portrait artist, Dan is nationally renowned for his talent of revealing his subjects' innermost qualities, embracing the dance between light and shadow, and anticipating the precise moment when the eyes glisten, hearts sing and the expressions share each individual’s story.
His story begins at a very young age. Carrying a Kodak Brownie camera on a kindergarten field trip sparked Dan’s photographic instinct; a blessing he loves to share today with his clients. Eventually he started his business in a century-old Victorian house in Bon Air, and has grown into the most unique portrait artist in Central Virginia, flourishing now at his current Waterfront Garden Studio located on the Swift Creek Reservoir in Brandermill.
Dan is still the one that will personally create your beautiful portraits; from chasing around a three year old into the water to get that perfect image, capturing a graduate at their proudest moment, to a quiet time as a bride ponders or before time changes your family forever, that is what Dan loves to do . . . helping you remember & share all the good times in your life as your family grows.
As a father, he recognizes how important preserving life’s happy and proud moments are through the art of portraiture. Dan is very proud and honored with this responsibility. He and his dedicated staff strive to be everything your family desires in a portrait artist. The selection of finishes are heirloom-worthy, combining beautifully-commissioned hand-painted oils on fine art linen canvas and state-of-the-art detailed design.
So why are you waiting? Life is not standing still. Decorate your home, office and share personal pieces of art work of your loved ones with all your friends, family & future generations for many years to come.
