ABOUT Daniel Jay Freed

Daniel Jay Freed – Bio

Daniel is a fine artist living in West Chester Pennsylvania ( Southeast PA/Chester County PA - Brandywine Valley area). He creates very unique, highly energetic watercolor paintings and pen & ink drawings using slightly surreal, humorous story-based concepts focusing on daily life. Daniel is currently doing a series of pen & ink drawings (with and without watercolor) of downtown West Chester PA city life. Most of the pen & ink works are humorous, featuring the people and places of West Chester. He often adds ( in writing throughout the work ) the thoughts of the characters and even the objects, as well as his own stream of consciousnesses comments. He also offers custom portrait paintings and drawings of people, pets and homes.

Dan was raised in Cleveland OH, lived in Columbus for 20 years, and lived in Oregon for 9 years before moving to PA in 2014. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the Columbus College of Art and Design in 1990 and received a Master of Arts in Teaching from Western Oregon University in 2009. He has taught art in public schools, University of Oregon, and community centers. He is married with 2 children...and 2 annoying cats.
