About Dan

Hi, I’m Dan, and I’m an artist! (You can see my latest work on

I haven’t always been an artist. Until quite recently I have just enjoyed painting as a hobby in my ‘spare time’. But one day I realised that by not fully embracing art, I was stifling my true potential, so I made the decision to be an artist.

That doesn’t mean that I suddenly became a full-time artist overnight, selling paintings for thousands of pounds. And it doesn’t even mean that I make the majority of my income from art. What it means is that art is an important part of my life, more than just a hobby, it’s something that inspires me and allows me to inspire others.

There are plenty of people out there who are making a decent living from their artistic pursuits, be it painting, photography, writing, or any other kind of creative endeavour. I’ve come to realise that it’s possible for anyone to achieve this goal. However, making money is not the ultimate goal for me. No matter how I earn a living, art will always occupy a significant space in my life. I’m now on a journey to discover what shape that space will take, and what I want to mould it into.

I have also written articles for:
