From Daniel Brevick: I’m an artist, photographer, peacemaker. I apply the arts to affect positive change in myself and hope to motivate others. Art can tell stories, and a well-told story brings awareness. Sometimes change. Commercial art is about communication. Fine art moves free from practical considerations, allowing personal exploration and expression. Combining them creates a unique voice. To learn more about Daniel Brevick, visit www.Black.Studio.
