In this age of information overload, Dan Dempster curates that rarest and most elusive commodity: peace of mind. Pointing out the spectacular in the mundane, he teaches how to see. In addition to his highly detailed studio drawings, paintings and sculpture, Dan enjoys the freshness of painting en plein air. He can often be found somewhere along the river, working quickly at his easel. His particular interest is the play of water and light: the refracted light in tide pools; the reflected color and shape of river rapids; and the vast detail of snow and ice in the mountains. A graduate of the University of Waterloo and Sheridan College, he has lived and shown in New York, LA, Boston and Bermuda. His work is in HSBC, Swiss Re and other private collections. Among other charitable events, his painting was selected for the British Red Cross Society “Art for Humanity” auction in London. Dan and his wife were married at Sunset Ranch in 2006 and now reside in Pagosa Springs with their two sons.
