Artistic talent combined with life-long exploration of consciousness and devotion to self-realization has given Daniel B. Holeman an ability to depict uplifting and profound sacred imagery. His inspirational paintings often have a strong impact on people. Many are deeply touched emotionally and describe his paintings as the some of the most uplifting pictures they have ever seen.
Daniel’s primary role in life is that of a messenger and catalizer for all (who are ready) to realize our Unity. And the art that comes through him is an expression of that role. He is here to assist others in aspiring to their unique purpose and gifts and living from that place – their fullest potential. He knows that more people being that way will bring about a better world for all Life.
Daniel feels it is not so much the beauty as the place it stirs in people that they are responding to. He invites the viewer to dive into a deeper dimension of consciousness while viewing his paintings. The imagery stirs forgotten awareness of a place felt to be HOME – a warm, familiar and heartfelt state of mind – a welcome contrast to the day-to-day world we live in. There is a kind of DNA Activation the colors and Light imagery activates. His work has been used on TV and videos, book and CD covers, magazines, prints, posters, cards and the internet.

Self-taught techniques include oil on canvas with airbrush highlights. The mandala works are pen and ink on paper, and then colored on computer. In recent years he has scanned his paintings into his computer and further manipulated his works and evolved new imagery, arriving at effects not so achievable on canvas.
At a young age Daniel had a profound spiritual awakening and experienced the nature of pure consciousness from which the manifest world is created. Since then his life has been about deepening that awareness and sharing it with others through art, lifestyle, conversation and guidance. His offerings include spiritual guidance, writings, multi-media videos that bring the art alive, and live presentations (talks with multi-media art and music).
Born and raised in San Jose, Daniel currently resides in the Gold Country, (Grass Valley/Nevada City) California and is working on various projects.
Daniel works offers Spiritual Guidance for those seeking it and is also available to give talks and presentations about conscious living – living aligned and fulfilling our potential, as well as the artwork and what it is about. His presentations begin with a brief moment of shared meditation (to gather our presence), a short video of artwork with music to evoke inspiration and an atmosphere of possibility, followed by a talk by Daniel on what seems appropriate to the group at that time, followed by a period of questions and answers, and ending with some inspiring music and socializing time.
