Daniel Crane is one of Britain’s leading sporting artists. He specialises in narrative scenes which epitomise life in the countryside.
A recent diversion to Daniel’s portfolio includes the wonderful opportunity to have been chosen to be the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment’s Resident Artist, a post he obtained just prior to the Royal Wedding & still has today. Many of these paintings were sold successfully raising significant funds for the Household Cavalry Foundation. The Official painting of the Diamond Jubilee, commissioned by the Officers of the regiment, hangs in the Officer’s Mess at the Knightsbridge Barracks. He was also chosen to paint the greatest racehorse of all time, Frankel, and the World & Olympic Dressage Champion, Valegro for the 130th Anniversary Edition of Horse & Hound to mention a couple of his many prestigious commissions.
Daniel and his wife Ali realised that his web site needed an upgrade to allow his paintings and prints to be purchased online, and which would work on devices of all sizes in this modern age of mobile technology.
