Me
Hello and Welcome, from me Daniel to you.

I am Scottish born and bred in Aberdeen, where I lived for the first eight years of my life, before as a family we relocated to Aberdeenshire. Both my parents were professionals, my mother was a registered psychiatric nurse and my father a social worker.

At around age three or four my mother regularly gave me pieces of scrap paper, and handed me my first toy which was a pencil. This fired my curiosity and wonder at what could be the visual outcome. I found learning a deeply gratifying pastime to distract me from the many free hours I had as a child. By the time I had turned seven or eight I had accrued enough confidence to go from imaginative scribbles to copying very simple designs from magazines.

After moving away from Aberdeen, art became an after thought. I made very little effort to continue my hobby because I was busy growing up as a youngster playing rugby and socialising with friends. Upon turning seventeen however my hero of a father died and I became disillusioned in life, it was the year 2000 and I had reached early adulthood.

I started to mature circa 2001, deciding to attempt further education and I applied to study Higher learning in Psychology and Art and Design at the then named Aberdeen College. Under the expert tutelage of Iain Caie, my technique developed into being studious with line and shape, as he was the finest at bringing out my inner thinker and to be honest great at motivating the kids. I left those days with no formal qualifications except a deep desire to study and learn first hand from the world at large, as formal education was not for me. By 2004 I had cemented my belief in myself and decided to take life seriously. Come hell or high water I have gone on to practice painting and drawing every day since, which helped me cope with life and later mature as a person.

Eight years later in 2012 I chose to found All Seasons Art Studio Ltd, and with it I rediscovered a desire for all forms of art. Ever since then I love being able to share my observations with the world at large. I continue to fully nurture my creative side and am very inquisitive about the portrayal of life. My direct aim is to develop my artwork and let my passion and creativity become my compass.

My willingness to evolve has given me the impetus to live sincerely, rising to the challenge to develop my voice by my mother. I have ® All Seasons Art Studio as my brand name and as a copyrighted trademark. With nearly four hundred products currently to my name and over twenty years experience in making works of art. I am very happy practicing what I love best - being someone who laughingly questions everything and sometimes learns nothing.

What about the future? I hope to achieve success in my vocation by creating more and more Fine Art, by choosing peace and being open to natures/world reality. Art to me is a reflection of lifes' great mystery. This is the origins of my passion for living, and following my heart, to explore in the school of life.

I'm an all round fine artist providing commercially styled drawing's and painting's from the Scottish School, and subscribe to an independent approach in an effort to manage an informal art studio practice. I love being able to share my obeservations with the world at large, either through images or in writing.

A purist when it comes to my Oils and Chalk Pastels, but do often apply Watercolour's to my smaller studies in Monochrome Pen's and Pencil's to test the nature of my abilities in these mediums. Generally I explore the school of life on ISO [UK] A2, A3, A4, A5 sizes of support.
