Dane Chinnock lives in Prescott, Arizona and has been painting with oils since the early 90’s. His professional art career got it’s start in January of 2016 with a juried entry into the Phippen Western Museum of Art show and sale. He won an “Award of Excellence” from Southwest Art Magazine, who later featured his work as an emerging artist to watch.
Growing up in Tucson then Prescott, Dane has always been drawn to the vast openness of the southwest. He spends as much time as possible getting out doors to find new vistas with endless storm filled horizons down long dirt roads, or finding untouched secret riparian areas. Dane expresses his emotional response to these beautiful spots in plein-air and studio works with his oils and only a palette knife.
