A native St. Louisian, moved to Atlanta, GA in 2015. He has been drawing since the age of nine; his mother saw his gift at a young age and continued to buy him coloring books until the age of fourteen, thereby enhancing his hand and eye coordination. On December 2, 1995, Daniel showed his first piece of art at Portfolio Gallery in St. Louis, MO. On each painting, near Daniel’s signature is “12/2” enclosed by a heart. This is in memory of his mother, Mrs. Dannice Paster. She passed away 12/2/1994; exactly one year prior to Daniel’s first showing. Daniel’s genre is realism and his medium is oil on canvas. He’s won numerous awards in recognition of his artistic ability. His artwork is acknowledged and respected across the United States, Europe and the Caribbean.
