Daniel Embree is an artist and writer. He works with many mediums, including printmaking, painting and drawing, bookmaking, and performance art, to explore personal and community narratives. His work often grows out of his research on topics such as sexual orientation, ritual and religious identity, and, more recently, New England folk magic.
Embree grew up in Chicago’s northern suburbs. Raised in the Mormon faith, Embree served as a full-time missionary in the greater Los Angeles area from 2005-2007. He graduated with a BFA in studio art from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, in 2009. He received a master’s degree in studio art from Tufts University in connection with the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2013. He currently lives in New York City.
