Raised in northwestern Montana, Daniel is a self-taught artist. His studio is the wilderness and National Parks that surround him. Daniel has spent his life in the woods and mountains studying each animal in its natural habitat.

This widely acclaimed artist possesses a rare eye for the aesthetics of fine art and for capturing the unique balance and grace that each of his subjects command. Each piece is sculpted with strictest attention to detail, posture and body proportions.

Daniel's sculptures are in prized collections around the world with countless pieces in private collections in the United States. Collectors include Jack Nicklaus, who purchased the bear table titled "Members Only", an edition now sold out.

In July of 1997, a piece dubbed "Montana's Largest Bronze", was placed in front of the Hibernation Station at West Yellowstone's Grizzly Park. This monument is a 1½ life-sized set of fighting bull elk entitled "Yellowstone Legacy". An awesome work that measures 23 feet long and 8 feet high, this piece was sculpted and constructed in Daniel's own foundry in Kalispell, MT.
