Danny McBride has spent all of his working years in the arts.First as a musician, composer and songwriter; Danny made world tours with the likes of David Hasselhoff, Chris de Burgh and Joe Cocker.His illustrious music career has netted him several gold and platinum records and a profile that still keeps him newsworthy.In 1996 he wrapped up a US and Taiwan concert tour and began to slow his pace.
Danny, now a painter, moved to Kelowna and began a new phase in his life.A self-taught artist, Danny's unique figurative style soon emerged. His acrylic images come alive on canvas in textured still-lifes and smoothly finished ladies in hats.His art is always exciting as he creates scenes that are light hearted and fun.Danny has had shows in Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Kamloops and New York.
Danny says he is no Gainsborough but some have told him that his paintings are like dreams. "I like that because I have no models or props, the work comes totally from within. I would like to think that my paintings give people a sense of well-being and something to spark the imagination."
