Dan Wallat

Dan has lived in the Spokane area all his life. His connection with nature was formed from years spent backpacking, camping, and fishing in the Northwest. He enjoys painting his favorite images from the locations he's visited. Since his retirement in 2012, he's been studying oil painting under local western artist, Joe Kronenberg. He continues to strive to improve as an artist in capturing the natural beauty around us.

This is what John tells us about himself:

Born native to Oregon in 1971. Lived in most of the western states, Portugal and Cape Verde Islands. Lifetime avid creator and recycler. God fearing Father of 3 and Husband of 1 true love. Steel, Stone and all things everlasting are my favorite mediums. Sound, movement and esthetics are found in my works which range from Harmonics to Hot Rods.

The majority of my inspiration comes from the desire to create that which has never been created before.
