Dan and Nisha met as classmates at the Art Centre of Toronto, Canada, in 1986. Receiving their degrees, respectively, in sculpture and illustration, Dan and Nisha purchased a kiln and began working together, initiating the collaborative effort that has evolved into their current art form.
In 1994, the couple moved to a warehouse-loft apartment bulding populated by artists, musicians and performers. Here, Nisha, a gymnast, founded an aerial and trapeze troupe, fulfilling her life-long fascination with the circus.
Seeking an alternative lifestyle, in 2001, Dan and Nisha moved to the charming Mexican artists' colony of San Miguel de Allende. Nisha established a new chapter of her trapeze troupe, and the couple now lives and works in their adopted homeland, surrounded by inspiration.
Dan and Nisha's interests and talents combine to form a unique partnership. Inspired by the joy of the circus and the splendor of the natural world, their exquisitely decorated earthenware bowls are mounted on lively horses, elephants, cheetahs, lions and zebras. Nisha uses the bowl as a surface on which to draw and paint; Dan constructs the foundation of the figures. Married in both art and life, Dan and Nisha give new meaning to the word "collaboration."
