XI DANNI

Danni is a highly regarded and talented artist based in Beijing, China. Her artistic talents have taken her to positions in the United States and exhibits in China and abroad. 

Danni has an eclectic studio in Beijing where she works, transforming field sketches and other sources of inspiration into paintings, collages and other mixed media pieces. The studio is small but filled with music, friends and many works in progress.

With other artists, she meets to socialize, exchange ideas and support each other's exhibits in the various art districts in Beijing. Life in Beijing is big, bold, colourful and vibrant. Her inspirations come from the hutongs, street life and ordinary life happening in the shadows.

DANNI FUN FACT: She lived in a big white house in Fayette, Iowa for several months as a guest artist at the Upper Iowa University. Not being a driver, she bought a $10 bicycle and would often be seen traveling large distances along cornfield-lined roads for inspiration!
