David Dauncey


David Dauncey was born and raised in the greenbelt surrounding the city of Birmingham, England. He grew up in a home that was noisy, large and full, eventually welcoming two brothers and two sisters. A somewhat tumultuous childhood and home life led David into a growing dependence on the outlet of sports, specifically football (soccer) and rugby.

Initially, David was entranced with sports as a career choice, but was soon to realize that this was not an option. Fortunately, a teammate on his soccer team who was studying Art & Design at the local college, suggested to David that maybe he should apply. He did, and was accepted, marking the beginning of the development of his artistic eye in a wide range of mediums, including photography, design, ceramics, painting and creative thinking. Eventually, David decided to work towards a degree in Ceramics at Bristol University between 1989-1991, but he still yearned to paint especially after becoming disillusioned with ceramics as a creative material.

David met an American girl whilst at University, and they married in 1993. The following year they relocated to the United States, having suffered enough poor weather and barking coughs. After having a few menial jobs during his first few years in Phoenix, David made the bold step of becoming a self-employed artist, working in collaboration with both national and international clientele. He has been happily broadening his spectrum of technique and experimentation ever since. David enjoys spending time with his son Jack, watching European soccer in the early hours of the morning, reading, traveling, playing with Edison the dog (named by Jack) and being married to Judith.
