THIS IS MY STORY
Dan was born with Down Syndrome and discovered art as a way to meet people.
Now in his early 40s, he has been producing a variety of art work over the past seven years in his Wednesday art classes.
He mostly paints with acrylics but also enjoys experimenting with watercolour pencils and collage techniques. He often likes to take a ‘hands on’ approach to his work and really get ‘stuck’ into his paintings.
His works are colourful and unique with a range of subject matter from still life, nature and images related to his hobbies and social interests including football, line dancing, bowling, dining out and travel.
Dan has begun to have his art work printed onto greeting cards and t-shirts that are on display and for sale at various retail and gallery outlets.
