Long White Cloud
Daniel’s background is in illustration and after a Foundation Course at Falmouth he went on to study Scientific Illustration at Blackpool College of Art. After leaving there in 1988 and having won a Readers Digest travel prize, he decided to spend the three months in Brazil where his sole aim was to watch and sketch birds. Since that time he has been on many field trips to India, Nepal, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Indonesia to capture images through sketching for his own enjoyment and for his work.
Daniels artistic philosophy is to sketch from life, saying it's the only way to capture the movement and shapes of creatures as they are rarely still, drawings made in the field and accumulated in his numerous sketch-books are the starting point for all his work.
