About Daniel Gunn

Born to create. Inspired to elevate. I am originally from Birmingham, Alabama. My ability to draw was discovered at an early age by my teachers and parents. As a kid, I began to enhance my drawing skills by analyzing and studying the techniques of various works of art that I came across. After residing in Birmingham for ten years, I relocated with my family to Fort Dix, New Jersey. My love of art and drawing continued throughout middle school and high school. In 1998 I enrolled in the Art, Advertising, and Design program at Burlington County Institute of Technology in Medford, New Jersey. After living on the east coast for several years, I would discover another interest which was architecture. In 2001, I relocated with my family to central Louisiana. It was a tremendous culture shock to me after living up north for so long. It was during my senior year of high school that I decided to pursue my interest in architecture and would be accepted into the School of Architecture at Louisiana Tech University. While studying architecture, I worked as an intern architect during the summers. In 2008 I received a Bachelor of Architecture from Louisiana Tech University. I currently reside in Dallas, TX and work for a prestigious architecture firm located in downtown. When I'm not busy designing buildings by day, I'm honing my skills with the paintbrush on canvas by night.
