Featured Artist | Daniel Edward
I am both a painter and visual arts educator based in the Chicago land area. I was born in 1979 in Chicago, Illinois, studied art education at Northern Illinois University and currently work in my field teaching fine art in the Northwest suburbs. I strive to expand the visual perceptions, visual communication and comprehension of young minds. I envision my teaching career as leading toward higher education and eventually the mentoring of future art educators. Though I spend my days educating future artists, I have never stopped the creation of my own works. I feel that being an actual artist gives me more authority to educate on the subject because I fully understand the process and emotional investment it takes to be an artist.
