Peter McDaniel
Photographer, Abstract Artist, Digital Artist, Printmaker and Woodworker

Peter has wanted to be an artist since he was a child, developing and honing his photography, pottery making, woodworking and basic cabinetmaking skills during his teen years. In college, he achieved his degree in engineering, but the love of art and photography never faded.  Using a wide range of photographic and software tools, his work spans Abstract Art, Digital Art, and Fine Art Photography.

In his work, Peter strives to capture images of boundaries and transitional places, reflecting the changes that continually occur within complex systems, such as the natural world. Believing that most boundaries are artificial and should be continually challenged, he seeks to question limitations and recognize transitional places, striving to create images that have depth and complexity, leading to new insights.

He also feels that each of his works is not complete until the correct presentation has been determined and to that end mats and frames all of his work himself.  He also believes that each piece of art should have the greatest longevity possible and employs only the finest quality archival papers, canvas, inks, matboard and foam board in its production. He has done extensive research into print media, matting and framing to create his unique style. He also creates the frames for some of his work, specializing in handmade frames that are designed to complement each piece of art. Peter makes his experience and technical expertise available for other artists and collectors for their printing and framing needs.

Peter also provides:
• Custom scanning of slides and negatives
Printing making services
Custom matting and framing
Hand-crafted hardwood frames
