About the Instructor Daniel Ambrose is a master of the rare painting technique of egg tempera, an ancient painting process he has been working in since 1992. To create his timeless egg tempera paintings, Ambrose makes his own paint from a 15th century Italian recipe, using egg yolks and natural earth pigments. His technique incorporates weaving translucent layers of paint into a rich tapestry of subtle hues, creating serenely beautiful paintings that radiate a luminosity seldom attained by contemporary artists. Daniel’s work is included in many private and public collections in North America and Europe. Collections include; Bank of America, City of Orlando, Daytona International Airport, Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center, Museum of Arts and Sciences Permanent Collection, Olan Mills Collection and Volusia County Judicial Center. In addition to numerous solo gallery and museum shows, Daniel’s paintings have been featured in the Gibbes Museum, Leepna-Ratner Museum of Art, The Museum of Arts and Sciences, The Florida State Capitol, and the Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art. Currently Daniel paints for his private collector list and solo gallery shows. Endorsements from his many former students attest to Daniel’s congenial, informative and supportive teaching style. An engaging speaker, Daniel has presented many lectures and demonstrations on egg tempera to museum groups, galleries and charitable organizations. Representation Daniel is represented by The Hughes Gallery in Boca Grande, Florida, The Cheryl Newby Gallery in Pawley’s Island South Carolina, The Crossnore Fine Arts Gallery in North Carolina and True North Gallery in Kennebunkport Maine.
