Detroit born Dan Gardiner is a Madison artist who enjoys creating collages from images ​he finds in old magazines ​and illustrated books. He also creates many of his own original digital images to place in his work.​ Dan begins with a rough layout in Photoshop, playing with color combinations​, and scanned photos of  vintage ads ​and photos ​from his huge magazine collection.….He then transfers his digital design to canvas…Working quickly and intuitively, he constructs his final piece from a mountainous and disorganized pile of gathered scraps of paper.. ​ In 1987, Dan painted a deer on friend's garage door, and he has been a professional artist ever since. Over the years he has created numerous murals, sports art, and book illustrations. He also works with Autistic children in several Dane County school districts.
