Dan McCaw

Dan McCaw is a well-known and highly respected contemporary impressionist from Seattle, Washington. McCaw is known for his city scenes, interiors, and still-life paintings. Born in an old mining town, McCaw began sketching and drawing at an early age. He started his formal education in art with a scholarship from the San Francisco Academy of Art in California. McCaw married in 1964, the same year he took a job as an illustrator for a Los Angeles firm, while still studying in school. However, this position didn't provide the artistic freedom McCaw desired. As a result, he left his position to study at the Art Center College for Design in Pasadena, California, later accepting a position there as a painting instructor.

After 15 years as an instructor, McCaw decided to devote himself fully to his own art. Over 20 years later, McCaw continues to explore his expression through art, and currently lives in Los Angeles, California, with his wife, Stacey.
