***IAEA MEMBER SPOTLIGHT***

The Nationally Recognized Sculptor, Daniel Borup, grew up in the small town of Meridian, Idaho, where he learned to love art from his older siblings. Daniel’s passion for art only grew when he went to college. This is where Daniel was introduced to figure sculpting. He instantly fell in love with sculpting and hasn’t put down his sculpting tools since. Years of work and development has awarded Daniel with honors and awards as well as the honor of creating public art sculptures for various locations throughout the country. In addition to sculpting, Daniel loves to teach art and help others cultivate their own creative skills. Much of the work Daniel creates is inspired by the relationships he has with his family and students.

Daniel was our Spring '19 conference keynote!! Check out his website

Congratulations to our 2018-19
