Dan Chudzinski

With a command of techniques rivaled only by his diverse interests, Dan Chudzinski�s quest to improve his artistic skillset has led to a host of unusual adventures. Throughout various chapters of his life, he has worked as a zoo taxidermist, apprenticed under master marble carvers in the mountains of Northern Italy, made functional artillery pieces for film and television, and created totem poles with Tlingit master carvers in Alaska.

His most recent projects include conceptual art and character designs for the critically acclaimed film The Ningyo, and a life-size polar bear commission for Greg Manchess� Above the Timberline exhibition at the Norman Rockwell Museum.

Born and raised in Fremont, OH, Dan received a B.F.A. in Sculpture and a B.A. in History from Miami University. He received an M.F.A. in Three Dimensional studies from Bowling Green State University. In 2015, Dan was named Curator of the Mazza Museum of International Art from Picture Books (University of Findlay), which houses the world�s first and largest collection of original illustrations from picture books. The Museum serves as host to the annual Enchanted Brush Exhibition, an event that Dan founded to showcase the works of his friends in the Imaginative Realism genre.
