“People’s Lives” by Daniel Verner

I'm in the Mirror

Daniel Verner is a self taught artist and musician with a great love for all types of artistic expression. Daniel’s art captures and honors the dignity, unique expression, and beautiful selves of the people he paints. “The painted portrait is more about who and what we are rather than just an image of our external appearance. In a sense a painting becomes a relationship, the interaction of what one person (the artist) saw, felt and was able to express visually for others and the life energy of the person represented. It is this sustained moment of sharing emotion, insight, and response that you the viewer is invited to enter.” -D. Verner
