I am Danie, an illustrator living and creating art in San Francisco, California.
Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, I spent many snowy winters as a youth creating quirky imaginary characters and bringing them to life on paper.
I pursued my studies in the arts and worked as a 3D digital artist for the next 16 years for companies such as Disney, Weta Digital and Dreamworks.
After gaining a solid foundation in storytelling and character development, I decided it was time for me to devote myself full time to my art.
Since, I have honed my art & illustration skills with Lilla Rogers professional online courses from Make Art That Sells. I also completed my surface design training with Bonnie Christine’s Immersion course.
I love to illustrate using paints, pencils and digital tools.
I am a sailor at heart and always looking forward to my next adventure.
When not creating art, you can find me sailing on The Bay.
