Mark Daniels has been capturing on canvas the beauty and diversity of the Southwest landscape for over 20 years. Trained in fine art and painting at the University of Texas, Austin, and the Scottsdale Artists' School, Mr. Daniels works primarily en plein-air (out of doors). Expressing a sincere and heartfelt response to emotions evoked by his love of the landscape, Mr. Daniels' work has continued to evolve into a synthesis of color harmonies, light and decorative form.
Mr. Daniels travels extensively in Arizona and New Mexico in search of new and exciting subjects, often hiking long distances in remote areas. Not content to work solely form photos in the comfort of his studio, Mr. Daniels relishes being outside in direct contact with Nature and her many moods.
"My aim is not to reproduce what I see, but to create an image that is centered on stability and permanence."
