Dan's statement: 'I was born in Ernabella, SA and lived with my family until five years old. I was taken away to Pt Augusta by the Methodist Church, where I was placed in a foster home. I attended primary school in Pt Augusta until 1958. I moved back to Alice Springs and lived with the Namatjira family for three years. I then went to work on cattle stations in SA, QLD and the NT. My closeness to the land and scenery that I saw led me to painting, as I wanted to be able to show others how beautiful it was. My work has sold well.'
