The youngest son of Dan McCaw and brother of John McCaw, also noted artists, Danny McCaw began drawing and painting at an early age and in an atmosphere where art materials and family encouragement were abundant. He left college in order to devote himself to art and was soon exhibiting work that that distinguished him in the artistic community. In the art of his maturity, McCaw creates an ebb and flow between reality and abstraction – often merging, combining, and layering these styles to build rhythmic compositions.

“I paint with an emotion, and the viewer sees this. My goal is to reach for the specific feeling of a place, rather than just what it looks like. This is why I spend so many hours working with mood and light, rather than detail.”
—Danny McCaw
