Dan believes that many people go through life never realizing or experiencing the blessings available to them. He hopes his art will evoke an awareness of a beautiful reality above and beyond the physical and point them towards a joyful relationship with Jesus Christ. He acknowledges that nothing he has ever achieved could have been done apart from the grace of God. Dan lives with his beloved wife, Ruth, in Freedom, New Sewickley Twp., Pennsylvania
