Dan Joyce




I was born in the city of Anaheim, California in 1965, raised Catholic and attended St. Juliana's elementary school. Art did not become an interest to me until high school when I asked my mother to lend me some drawing materials so I could apply what I learned from some pictures of masterpieces in the encyclopedia. In a short period of time my room was filled with pastel illustrations. Expressive, wild and free has become my style ever since.

I attended college initially studying finance, but soon became inspired by Mariciano Martinez, my watercolor teacher at Fullerton College. Art became my new major and field of life study. But the road has not been easy. In Los Angeles, I became a street artist and a background actor to make ends meet.

I graduate Cal State Fullerton receiving my B.F.A. with a studio in Fullerton, California . My art hangs in several galleries here in Orange county and Los Angeles my life is my love is my art.
