ABOUT THE ARTIST

Daniel Cliburn, AFC
April 1, 1971







Very early in life my parents noticed my artistic side and
have always encouraged it.  My first love of drawing was
dinosaurs, then sharks, then deer.  The years went by,
and as my art became more and more detailed, I was
more and more in need of good photos for my own
personal style of art.  

Of course, I love the outdoors and always came home
talking about all that I saw, so my wife (fiancée at the
time) surprised me on my 29th birthday with a really nice
35mm camera.  It was quickly put to good use building
piles of reference photos for years of art possibilities!  

With help and encouragement of family and friends, I
finally started to take my artistic ability more seriously
instead of just a hobby.  
I’ve only scratched the surface of the never ending
potential of art.  With all the intricate and miraculous
gifts of life God has blessed this earth with, I’m quite
sure I’ll never be bored.

At age 33 my wife and I became the very blessed
parents of our first child, Danielle.  She has really
motivated me to do more with my God given talents.  I
want her to have the best life possible.  I look very
forward to sharing the love of art with her and watching
our creative side blossom together.

On March 29, 2007, I presented
Governor Perdue with a giclee signed
and numbered print of "Fence Line
Covey."  I am told it is now displayed
in the governor's mansion.

2009 UPDATE
Around Christmas this year, my wife and I
will be the proud parents of
FOUR
children! As you can imagine with a five
year old, eight month old twins and the
fourth on the way, time to paint is hard to
come by. In an effort to have new
paintings available on a regular basis, as
well as being able to satisfy a larger
audience, I will be using a different style
for many of my future works. I will offer
more landscapes, but wildlife and their
preservation will always be a major factor.
Please check my site regularly for new
originals. I am very excited about this and
hope to finally be able to paint many
scenes from the photographs that I take
on a daily basis!
Sincerely,
Daniel Cliburn
