Art Director/ Curator,

Dan Philips

For many years I'd been involved in the creation, production, and management of digital projects.  My transitional return to creative painting and writing has taken place since my retirement in 2012. My paintings can be seen at several venues around Toronto.  

 I managed design for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation inside their then new digital production studio in Toronto.  I was the very first Head of Computer Generated Imagery for Walt Disney Feature Animation on their movies BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, ALADDIN, LION KING, as well as the startup of FANTASIA and POCAHONTAS.

I studied at the  DETROIT SOCIETY OF ARTS & CRAFTS ( now known as CENTER FOR CREATIVE STUDIES ) WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY in DETROIT, MICHIGAN CARLETON UNIVERSITY in OTTAWA, CANADA

My professional training  including courses, seminars, and sessions in Design, UNIX, Computer Data, HTML and web pages, Computer Design and Animation, Leadership, Management,  3d Stereoscopy while working in Toronto, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
