Dan Gardiner is a creative and dedicated, full-time artist, who started his art career in Green Bay in 1985. Today he creates both large scale murals, and torn paper collages. “I’ve never forgotten that childhood thrill,” Dan recalls, “when Mom would bring home a new coloring book and a fresh box of 64 Crayola Crayons.”
Dan lives and works in his studio in Madison, Wisconsin, surrounded by the intellect and culture of the exciting college town. He arrived in Madison several years ago to complete a lengthy painting assignment for the zoo, then stayed on in the bustling art community, completing many challenging projects for the college and large hospital system, and fine art collage for collectors across the country.
