Dan McCarthy's Profile

About

Hi. I'm Dan McCarthy, a wildlife artist from eastern Long Island specializing in oil. Though lacking any formal training, I've loved to draw since I was old enough to be trusted with a pencil and spent much of my childhood creating superheroes and villains. A few years ago, I decided to try painting. I have a BA in history and figured it would be cool to paint portraits of famous revolutionaries. Next, I tried painting a tiger, which unearthed my latent passion for wildlife. I haven't painted anything else since.
Currently, I reside on Long Island, not too far from my parents and brothers, with my wife, Briana, and cantankerous chihuahua, Pancho.
