David Dalton was born in 1952 in Pontiac, Michigan. He grew up in California in an artistic home as the son of award winning artist Lee T. Dalton. In 1977, he graduated with a degree in fine art from the University of California, Santa Cruz. He has been a full-time oil painter since 1978, and has developed a national reputation for his Seascapes and Landscapes. Dalton has mastered a unique style of brushwork that gives luminosity to his paintings, and his layered application of color imparts depth and perspective. His inspiration is the beauty of the California coastline, the rural California hills and valleys, and the National Parks of the West. He resides with wife, Cheryl, in Coarsegold, California, south of Yosemite National Park.
