Dacquisto, a Racine native, has always had a passion for art and creativity from a young age. He credits his mother, Rose, for encouraging artistic expression while accepting his need to go outside the "boundaries." He enjoys using pastel, charcoal, and graphite. When creating art, Dacquisto draws inspiration from the 30s, 40s, and 50s along with timeless personalities such as Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, and Barney Fife. He was also a featured guest artist at the Photographic Design Gallery & Framing in Racine.
