Daniel Gerard Likar was born in June 1994 and grew up in a very average suburb of the greatest city in the world, Cleveland.
He grew up loving art and began drawing at an early age. It wasn't until he was in high school that he found that he preferred three dimensional art and crafting something one of a kind with his hands. He got his start in crafts at Garfield Heights High School, under the leadership of Artist, Jeanne Tiefenbach. Danny has a Bachelors of Fine Arts with a concentration in Jewelry and Metal Smithing from Kent State University.
His main body of work consists of jewelry that focuses on the ideas of bold playful colors and iconic shapes. In every piece of his work Danny wants to bring out the inner child in the wearer and create a feeling of childlike whimsy. He strives to make useable art that appeals to anyone who encounters it. He wants his work to be worn often and loved well. Danny lives and works in Cuyahoga Falls, OH.
