International Canadian artists Nisha and Dan Ferguson knew as children that they would be artists. Both were fascinated with drawing since the impressionable age of three. They both answered without hesitation, when asked what they wanted to be when they grew up, “Artist!”
They spent every summer of their childhood in their family’s cottages: in the Kawarthas north of Toronto for Dan, and in the Gatineaus, east of Ottawa for Nisha. They each traveled for a year before enrolling at the Art Centre of Central Technical School of Ontario, which is of course as you may have guessed by now, where they met some 20 years ago.
Right after graduation Dan and Nisha married. With as much precision and as sure of one another as two trapeze artists who meet in mid air, they began to collaborate artistically and have never looked back. Dan is the sculptor and mould maker, and Nisha is the designer and painter.
Now parents of two sons, Joshua and Julian, and internationally renowned as DaNisha Sculpture they exhibit their work in prestigious galleries and boutiques throughout Canada, Mexico the United States and Australia. Always open to adventure, places of great beauty, and the stimulation of change, Dan, Nisha, and their sons relocated to San Miguel de Allende Mexico in 2001. The art and architecture of Mexico have inspired Dan, and Nisha with new combinations of color and light.
