Daniel focuses on human creation. Our built environment, our technology, and our art reveal the divine spark, the spark of creation, in all of us. Sacred and secular, residential and industrial, handcrafted, and manufactured, our structures, spaces, and what we put in them, form our lives and reveal much of whom we are.
