Dani is an illustrator based in Brooklyn, NY. She holds a BFA in Communication Design from Washington University in St. Louis and a MFA in Illustration as Visual Essay from School of Visual Arts.

She wants to interpret the world through her unique visual language to bring more color to her life. When she isn't drawing, she is probably rewatching her favorite films such as The Fifth Element and the Before trilogy or rummaging through bookshelves in small independent bookstores.
