About

Abstract artist specializing in pop, African-American, and cartoon art!

My name is Danielle, I was raised on the far side of Chicago in the Englewood neighborhood . I started drawing as a young child just to express my inner feelings. I would draw the things that I saw happening in my neighborhood, as well as things that would go on in my household. I remember drawing a picture of me, my mother, and my sister all together but my dad far away in his car. I was waving bye because that’s how it always was. I drew things how I saw them.

As time went on I developed terrible anxiety. I remember having my first panic attack at the age of about eight or nine. When I Would draw it took my mind to another place. It’s took my mind to a peaceful place. 

 

Once in high school I started a business drawing cartoon characters on large Christmas stockings. My business did so well that my house looked like a factory. Art was my passion, but the responsibility became too much for me being so young. My little business ended up slipping through my fingers. I did get accepted into art school upon graduation but my family didn’t have the money or know much about grants so hearing $84,000 scared me away from it. I never attended and life went on. 

 

Once I became an adult shortly after turning 21 I became pregnant with my daughter and art was just not a priority anymore. One day years later the terrible anxiety started back. I decided to head to the art store to grab art supplies. I only grabbed a sketchbook and a few pencils just to have an anxiety relief. Shortly after a friend entered me into an art show. Now in 2020 I have my small art business, and I look forward to my business growing and prospering. God gave me a gift that never left!
