Born in Ohio and educated at the Ohio State University, Stouffer’s early professional career was in book design and production management.

His first years in NM were spent at the University of New Mexico Press. During that time, lured by the mystique and beauty of the land, he began painting. He eventually turned his part-time painting into successes in local and regional art events, and in 1979, he left the Press and became a full-time artist.

Since that time, Stouffer has built an impressive list of credentials. His work has been shown in several museums and is in corporate collections throughout the country. He has won 60 national and regional awards along the way, some in such prominent competitions as Watercolor U.S.A., Rocky Mountain National and Arts for the Parks.  Also, in 2010, the Albuquerque Art Business Association designated him a “local treasure.”

In addition to exhibiting in most of the top art events in the Southwest, Stouffer has been a board member and juror for several shows. He is currently a member of Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Society, Watercolor USA Honor Society, and Paint America Association, and is listed in Who’s Who in American Art and Who’s Who in the West. His work has also been featured in various newspapers and magazine articles, including Watercolor Quarterly,Southwest Art, and Watercolor Magic.

Dan Stouffer currently resides in Bosque Farms, NM, with his wife Jean.
