Danny McCaw, the youngest son of the well known American Expressionist Dan McCaw, began drawing and painting at an early age. Growing up in an enviroment where artistic expression was not only encouraged, but nurtured allowed Danny to quickly develop a maturity to his artwork that was lacking in other young artists. However, being constantly surrounded by painters, poets and photographers made Danny even more determined to develop an individual style of his own that would set him apart from the other members of his family.
Attending the El Camino College, the Scottsdale Artists School, and studying with the well known figurative painter Steve Huston, Danny developed a method of painting that has since become his signature. Favoring dark colors that allow for dramatic lighting, Danny paints with an emotion that the viewer can see long after the paint has dried. Working in a spontaneous manner that allows for more "give and take", McCaw works with his paintings over long periods of time, enjoying the struggle it takes to create a masterpiece.
Danny has been profiled in Southwest Art and was awarded the Wright Foundation Scholorship to the Scottsdale Artists School in 2002.
