Daniel J. Keys was born - the second of three children - to Rev. & Mrs. Keys, on Oct. 7th 1985, in Fresno CA.
Upon noticing a glimpse of artistic talent in him at an early age,
Daniel was encouraged by his parents to pursue his passion, namely
painting; and being entirely home educated, time was very permitting
for him to develop his skill as a self taught artist. Growing up in a
Christian home, he began to understand the blessings of living in a
faith-filled environment, and recognized his ability to paint to be a
gift from Almighty God.
He started painting at the age of eleven using a paint set
purchased with birthday money. It was during the next few years that
Daniel discovered the work of master artist Richard Schmid, and began
emulating Schmid's style in his own paintings. Since that time, Daniel
has come to develop his own signature style - painting still life, and
landscapes - using rich, beautiful colors to create glowing
Daniel’s work is praised and collected by many prominent art
enthusiasts and collectors, as he continues to move forward with his
career, becoming one of the leading young artists in the nation. He
currently lives in Firebaugh California, with his family who continues
to bring him great encouragement and support.
As you look deep into the heart of each of Daniel’s paintings you will
began to understand his desire that the viewer not only see a beautiful
piece of art, but also, through it receive a message of hope, and
experience peace, joy, and a sense of God's love for all good things.
