Artist Biography

Manumet GalleryInitially self-taught since the spring of 1995, Daniel Peter Smith originally from Halifax, has lived in Vancouver Canada for 24 years. He has studied with Vancouver artist Linda Findlay and with South African Artist Leon Soriano. Soriano now resides in Toronto, Canada.
He began to show his work in 2001.
Smiths' whimsical Abstract paintings are made with acrylic, mixed media and some oils which he produces from his small home studio apartment affectionately called the "Tiny Kingdom"
His art is represented in private collections of various people and can be found in Australia, Chile, USA and across Canada.
From 2009-present, He continues to paint but has taken a break from showing due to some continued major health issues.
The visual art shown on this page is only a fraction of the prolific work he has created.

I have reduced pricing drastically to clear out old stock.
