Dan Wetterwald

I am fortunate to have been born and lived in the hilltowns surrounding Shelburne Falls. I have always been surrounded by beauty in these foothills and rivers, as well as by the people who live here. Many here are local artists and farmers of all kinds who strive to lead simple lifestyles. My father was born and raised in Geneva, Switzerland. I grew up with him always working hard and spending his spare time working in our gardens or creating marquetry pictures. His European influence on my work is simple, functional and artistic. I have aspired to emulate his example of exceptional fine detail and striving for perfection in my work.
