Daniel’s work derives from subconscious images that occur from periodic meditation and day dreaming. As a result, he achieves a phantasmal dream-like quality to the figures and places portrayed in his drawings. In addition to looking for inspiration internally, Daniel’s work is influenced by nature, his sleep paralysis and accented with symbolism and themes that touch upon Jungian-style ideals. Daniel resides in a small quiet vacuum of space somewhere on the south shore of Massachusetts along with two cats (Baxter and Bellatrix) and some fish.
His illustrations have been featured in numerous local poetry zines, States of Terror (Vol 2, Vol 3), Creepy Romance (Vol 4) as well self-publishing two art books: TesseraE I and TesseraE II which were both successfully funded through Kickstarter.
