Printed on recycled paper
Daniel Merriam grew up in a small village along the coast of Maine in a household filled with music and creativity. Surrounded by ornate Victorian and Colonial houses built in the rugged landscape, his imagination soared. Daniel taught himself to paint at a young age, and he learned to build log cabins in the woods alongside his father. He then studied mechanical and architectural design and began a career as an architectural illustrator.
Unfulfilled after a few years, Merriam gave up commercial art to follow his dream of artistry. He built his skills and portfolio with fantasy-fueled drawings and paintings, including one titled Bubble Street. His surreal artworks combine a romantic Victorian sensibility with a dreamlike quality. He says his paintings are vehicles for his dreams, not the product of them, so viewers can jump in and take the story wherever they choose.
In 2012 Merriam opened Bubble Street Gallery—an emporium celebrating creativity and the imagination in Sausalito, California—where he and other steampunk-infused artists showcase their work. Merriam’s artwork has been exhibited across the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.
