Daneen Smith: Mom, Marketer, Maker
I love to create. The desire to create runs deep since my childhood. The creative process gives me life and energy and I love spreading visual joy to others. My professional career was in visual arts (marketing and events) and I would dabble in fine art in my free time. Recently, I fell in love with resin art. I combine vivid colors, mixed media and experimenting with various techniques to create my pieces. I am inspired and awed by the beauty in nature.
I grew up in the sticks in a small coastal northern California town and spent a fair amount of time on the island of Kauai. The ocean speaks to my soul and the beauty in rocks and wood grain have been imprinted on my brain since childhood. I attempt to recreate what I see in my ocean and geode inspired home decor. No two pieces are exactly alike. I pair art with functionality - coasters, serve ware, charcuterie boards, etc. I value the idea of reuse and recycle. Several pieces in my collection were once something else and refreshed to be something new. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I did creating it.
