Dave Burkart, Miami Member Since April 2010 Artist Statement Dave Burkart was born in Wisconsin but has lived in Florida most of his adult life. He began drawing as a toddler and has continued ever since. David graduated from the University of Miami after majoring in commercial art. While he pursued a long career in graphic and exhibit design, he continued to develop his skills in art, particularly in pen and ink, silk screen, acrylics but also in craft work of all kinds.
His interest in and study of botany and landscape architecture led to production of botanical drawings and his focus on landscape as a genre for paintings and prints. David also has designed museum exhibits, signage and furniture. His graphic portraits have appeared on coinage and he also is known internationally as a heraldic artist and designer.
Recently, he decided to produce new paintings and prints directed toward a wider audience and to republish some of his earlier graphic works. He selected Imagekind as the primary outlet for this project. Look for regular additions to the initial offerings seen here.
