Dan Villiers is our resident artist and co-owner. He  has been drawing and painting and creating since a very early age.


As a graphic designer, he always yearned for the chance to dedicate himself full time to painting. The move to Tasmania provided the opportunity to return to his first love, and the Art Shack was created. He now revels in the chance to immerse himself in painting in a variety of different media and to personally present the results to the many visitors arriving at the Art Shack


Come and meet Dan in his workplace.....see how he prepares his subjects, his materials and tools, and talk with him about his approach. Dan will be delighted to give you an insight into his craft.
