West Wind Fine Art



Daniel J. Keys was born on Oct. 7th 1985, in Fresno CA. Upon noticing a glimpse of artistic talent in him at an early age, Daniel was encouraged by his parents to pursue his passion, namely painting; and being entirely home educated, time was very permitting for him to develop his skill as a self taught artist.

Growing up in a Christian home, he began to understand the blessings of living in a faith-filled environment, and recognized his ability to paint to be a gift from Almighty God.

He started painting at the age of eleven using a paint set purchased with birthday money. It was during these impressionable years that Daniel discovered the work of master artist Richard Schmid, and began emulating Schmid's style in his own paintings. Since that time Daniel has had opportunity to paint with his mentor, and Mr. Schmid has become a sort of art adviser to him.

Daniel's work is now praised, and collected, by many prominent art enthusiasts from all around the country, and he is represented by two major art galleries: Greenhouse Gallery of Fine art in San Antonio, and Gallery 1261 in Denver.

As you look deep into the heart of each of Daniel's paintings you will began to understand his desire that the viewer not only see a beautiful piece of art, but also, through it receive a message of hope, and experience peace, joy, and a sense of God's love for all good things.
