Dan Bowell was born in Dayton, Ohio in 1943 and revealed his artistic talent at an early age. Although he was encouraged to continue in this vein as a college student, Dan lacked the confidence to do so. Over a thirty year period, he was an avid art collector and continued to study and create art, but did not exhibit his own work.
Throughout the years, Dan focused his attention on the French and American Impressionists. He was particularly attracted to Cezanne and William Merritt Chase. Dan has been quoted as saying: "I have always been intrigued by the fine line between representational and abstract art that existed in the Impressionist paintings."
In 2005, Dan launched his own career as an artist; his paintings have met with resounding success. His use of color and the free-flowing lines of his compositions are both dramatic and esthetic.
Dan Bowell graduated from Otterbein College and estimates that he has taken at least 30 art courses at the Columbus College of Art and Design and Ohio State University. He and his wife, Cheri, reside in Ohio and South Carolina and are actively involved in helping wounded servicemen and women. Dan currently donates the proceeds of all his sales to veterans' organizations.
