Blue Portal Artist of the week, June 26, Dan McDonell
Dan creates unique and detailed wooden toys that have wheels. He makes wooden trucks, tractors, play furniture for dolls, American Doll furniture, and even play kitchens.
Dan grew up while his family worked in a Santa Fe lumber business. Dan previously worked as a cabinet maker. This experience makes sense that Dan transitioned into making children’s toys for Blue Portal.
Dan has been selling his safe children’s toys for four years now at Blue Portal. He thinks that the Assistance League of Albuquerque volunteers are very helpful and nice to work with.
