Daniel Diehl's artistic flare began at a young age in Jenison, Michigan. Always drawing from his imagination and love for the unusual, he began a long journey into the career in art which he now practices and loves. His artwork spans several mediums. Although drawing and candle soot work are his primary passions, he also creates fantastic oil paintings which generally involve single subjects and a high level of realism. Although he prefers portraiture, Daniel also enjoys depicting still life, animals and dabbling in surrealism. Daniel used his artistic skills to invent a line of mechanical puzzles which are now sold in an ever increasing number of retail stores along the east cost. Puzzle making and artwork go hand in hand. Both exercise the mind heavily but on separate levels. He see's it as a perfect combination of work and pleasure. A situation few have the opportunity to appreciate in their professional life. An Air Force veteran, Daniel resides in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina with his wife and son.
