Since leaving Falmouth School of Art a long time ago, Daniel has worked as a freelance artist/illustrator. Working mostly in the field of Natural History his work was used by the BBC and in books for publishers around the world.
He is a long time member of the Society of Wildlife Artists and his paintings of birds have won several awards, most recently the Swarovski Bird Artist of the Year 2016 at the Mall Gallery.
Having observed and sketched wild birds from an early age, Daniel developed his skills through a series of expeditions around South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, studying each region’s indigenous birds and honing his techniques in sketching and painting. For the last few years his work has been exploring the sand dunes and saltmarsh of the Norfolk and Cornish coast working predominantly in oil on board from observation and understanding.
A selection of Daniels paintings can be found on cards published by Dry Red Press and he also exhibits in London and in galleries throughout the UK.
