Dan Twitchell is a longtime Alaska resident and has spent many years photographing and painting Alaska's amazing landscapes and wildlife. The rugged beauty of this great State and the abundance of wildlife serve as inspiration for his paintings and photography. Dan is a self taught artist and photographer, and paints in both plein air and from reference photos taken during his excursions around the state.
His painterly style reflects his interpretation of Alaska’s beautiful wildlife and rugged terrains through his vibrant colours and loose expressive brushwork. "I do not merely want to capture the image with my brushes; rather with careful, colourful strokes of paint. I strive with each finished work to breathe life into my subject. My goal is share the beauty of Alaska with the world through my art and my lenses."
