Trained as a graphic designer (B.A. Iowa State University), Dan Wiemer’s career evolved from a commercial art director/graphic designer to freelance illustrator in 1988 and now as a full time fine artist. As a past president of the Minnesota Watercolor Society, he saw the endless variety of ways to handle watermedia. Dan continues to share his talents with other artists as a workshop instructor. Through an artist exchange program, he was fortunate to spend three weeks in China painting and teaching. His original artwork is found in public and private collections throughout the United States.
Dan currently resides in the Mississippi River Valley of Minnesota where his preferred painting themes of trees and rocks are bountiful and varied. He enjoys golf, morel hunting, agate collecting and studying nature.
