"This artwork is part of my 'Love with No Boundaries' project, which is a creative exploration of humankind and our interaction and love for animals. These art pieces incorporate the beauty and grandeur of animals and the passionate adoration they bring from within the depths of the human character.
Romancing the idea of being free, whether in reality or in mind and spirit, this project combines the human connections expressed in my whimsical artworks with wildlife."
Working as a portraitist for Walt Disney has shaped Danielle B Latta's skills and style. She is recognised for her distinctive work through Running Duck Studio.
In 2012, Danielle's partner was involved in a motorbike accident causing neck, spine and brain damage. Being an integral part of their ongoing support and recovery has helped Danielle understand the depths of hidden struggles and pain. She has found a lack of visible injuries often cause unsympathetic reactions.
Danielle's journey is shown throughout drawings, subconsciously expressing her own struggle.
Her artwork has become more light-hearted and uplifting, illustrating the small but special moments that can be found in everybody's lives. This has been an almost involuntary reaction to bring balance to life once again.
