Dan Johnston

About the Artist:

Dan Johnston is currently retired from engineering and coaching. He devotes his time to painting, flying, and grandchildren.

After graduation from Northwestern University, he began his engineering career in aerospace working on several aircraft and spacecraft.  These included the Sabreliner(T-39), F-100, X-15, B-1, and Space Shuttle.  He returned to school and received a degree in biomedical engineering.  During this time he also did basic research in two-phased flow which work generated devices that ended up being used on trucks, locomotives and power plants.  After graduation from the University of Southern California, he joined the medical device industry and worked on products including catheters, respiratory tubes, heart valves, heart-lung machines and an array of ancillary products for respiratory  and cardio-vascular care.

Mr. Johnston began coaching soccer and track and field at the club level in 1982.  His field events were the shot put and the discus.  He began coaching high school as a "walk-on" coach in 1990 and continued until retirement in 2012 having coached at two high schools.

Mr. Johnston is an instrument rated private pilot.  Flying is one of his passions.  If he is not at his easel, he is likely in the air behind the yoke of a Cessna Skyhawk.

Mr. Johnston began sketching and painting in the 1970's.  Initially all of his works were gifts to friends and family.  Recently, he has been exploring both expressionism and more traditional styles as applied to a variety of animals.
