About Ashburn, VA Artist Dave White

I was born in 1984 in Lima, Ohio, and grew up on the outskirts of Fort Wayne, Indiana. 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 always knew that I was meant to be an Artist, and remember really enjoying painting and drawing from a very young age. For the past 10 years, I have been working on fine art commissions for a wide range of projects, including portraits, murals, house paintings, landscapes, seascapes, and more. I graduated from the University of Indianapolis in 2006, then worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer in rural Costa Rica (where I painted my first murals) from 2006 to 2008, and worked as an Accountant several years afterwards (not my cup of tea even though I was very good at it). Presently, I live in Loudoun County (Ashburn), Virginia, am married and have two sons!
