An Endless Imagination
Daniel Merriam taught himself to paint at a very young age. He went on to study mechanical and architectural design at Central Maine Vocational Technical Institute and, while still in school, put his new skills to work in his family’s design and construction business. Merriam turned to the field of architectural design in a professional capacity, where his illustrations received numerous awards, including an honorary Master of Arts in Humanities from the University of New England in recognition of the potential social contribution of his work.
Merriam eventually focused solely on fine art and later that year held his first solo exhibition. Since then, his exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe have received critical acclaim. The hallmark of Merriam’s work is his boundless imagination that weaves a world both fantastic and rooted in the beauty of the Victorian era.
