Dan Moran is a self-taught artist who has been drawing as long as he can remember. He was born in Connecticut, moved to Maine when he was 10 years old, and moved to Vermont when he was 17 to attend Goddard College, from which he graduated in 1992 with a B.A. in Liberal Arts (concentration in metaphysics). He spent a year in San Francisco in a Ph.D. program in Philosophy and Religion at the California Institute of Integral Studies, focusing on Tibetan Buddhism. He did not enjoy California (mainly because of the lack of snow and cold, which he enjoys very much), and so returned to Vermont to start a new graduate program at Vermont College of Norwich University. He earned his M.A. in Philosophy and Religion from Norwich in 1995.
Dan has worked with many mediums, including acrylic and oil paint, stone and clay sculpture, collage, etching, and of course drawing. Drawing is his favorite, and his weapon of choice is the black ball-point pen. Dan also does calligraphy, preferring ball-point or felt-tip pens for this (rather than calligraphy pens). He has done a large number of commissioned portraits and a few commissioned creative pieces, has painted some signs with both images and lettering, and has designed a number of T-shirts. His work has been featured in horror and fantasy magazines, and on the CDs and T-shirts of some metal bands. His drawings of historic Nantucket sites are sold in the Museum Shop of the Nantucket Historical Association.
Dan’s other interests include history, geography, travel, poetry, and literature. He has taught himself how to play guitar, taught himself German, and with his wife has been learning to sail for a few years. He has recently taken up fencing and downhill skiing.
Dan currently works as an editor of medical journals at Dartmouth Journal Services in Waterbury, and supplements his income by freelance editing and proofreading, as well as by art commissions and by modeling.
