I was born in 1984 in Lima, Ohio, and grew up on the outskirts of Fort Wayne, Indiana. My family traces its roots here back over 300 years, with cultural influences from the foothills of western Appalachia. My Mom left her career to raise me, my brother and sister, and my Dad worked for nearly 40 years operating freight trains as a railroad engineer. I began developing my artistic skills in early childhood, as I’d draw portraits of my favorite basketball and baseball players, and landscapes of places I would dream of. Later on, I studied Accounting in college, for a “reliable” career, as well as Spanish. During this time, I met my wife, a native of Sterling, VA, while we were both studying abroad in Seville, Spain. After graduating, I lived over 2 years in a small village in Costa Rica as a Peace Corps Volunteer. In the years since then, my artwork has taken on a greater and greater role in my life, as I continue to trust allowing my creative instincts to flourish. Presently, I live in Loudoun County (Ashburn), Virginia, and have 2 young sons, who are my treasures. You can contact me at dave@davewhiteartist.com
