About the Instructors

Victoria Steel (b. 1994) Victoria Steel spent a fair bit of her early childhood sniffing scented markers and chewing up old crayons. She found that drawing and painting were her obsessions; and so, Victoria decided to form her passion for art into a viable career. It was in 2012 when she was presented an immediate seat at the Ani Art Academy Waichulis studio. Now an artist studying under the talented trompe l’oeil artist, Anthony Waichulis, Victoria aims to develop a high enough level of technical skill so she, too, can enjoy drawing and painting realistically.  Victoria Steel currently resides near the city of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. She is now studying the art of oil painting, and executes highly-rendered creative pieces in her free time.

Dan Christian (b.1975) Although Dan has always had an interest in painting, he became serious about art in 2011 when he resigned from his corporate America position to pursue a more creative endeavor.  In an effort to earn a living through the utilization of anything art, Dan embarked upon an exciting journey as a tattoo artist.  While traveling the globe and perfecting his skill, Dan learned of the Ani Art Academies’ program from a fellow tattooer and Ani apprentice.  He was thoroughly impressed with the work that was being produced by the academy and was immediately inspired to apply.  Dan began his apprenticeship at Ani Art Academies Waichulis in 2014 with the intent of developing himself into the best artist possible and in turn opening the doors to future artistic opportunity. Since starting at Ani, Dan has shown his work at galleries such as Rehs Contemporary, located in NYC, and is currently represented by The Lovetts Gallery, in Tulsa, OK. FACEBOOK
