Daly Smith is an architect residing in Macon, Georgia. He approaches his artwork much as he does his architecture, striving to create design that is both beautiful and simple by identifying and emphasizing the key elements.
His ability to pare down the essentials of a scene is one of the hallmarks of his style.
Growing up in Macon, Daly loved to draw. His interest led him to Georgia Tech where he earned his degree in Architecture. After college, he returned to Macon where he is the owner of his own architectural firm. In 1991 he resumed his love of art. Enrolling at the Wesleyan Center for the Arts, he studied with local artist Marianne Dunn for several years and has been painting ever since. More recently he has studied at the Art Students League of New York and taken workshops and studied with nationally prominent artists including Bill Davidson, David Leffel, Ken Auster and Mark Boedges.
