Dan Coble has been creating traditional paint decoration and paint finishes for more than 40 years. He always had a love of early painted furniture, admiring the history and visual richness of grain-painted, stenciled, and freehand-painted pieces he saw in museums, shops, and homes. After graduating with a BFA degree in fine art painting, he taught and had a retail business doing custom framing and selling antiques for ten years.
He closed his retail business in 1981 and focused on creating his own work—interpretations of traditional painted pieces he admired. His “canvases” for painted finishes consist of antique, fine vintage, and new wood furniture and accessories. He also produces paintings.
Coble lives in northeastern Indiana with his wife, Marlene, who is also an artist. They work from their country home, where they enjoy the wildlife, birds, and being kept company by their dog, Maggie, and cats, Daisy and Vincent.
Dan Coble have been selected for the following Directories:
