About purepurplepassion


My name is Danica but please feel free to call me Dani. I am an artist and a freelance children's book illustrator. I work in several different mediums, including oils, watercolors, pencil and even crayon. I almost always have a sketch pad in my hand to take advantage of all the intriguing things I come across!
I have several different artists that are favorites with Van Gogh being my top choice! Monet, Rembrandt, Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso, Dali, O'Keefe
I am a widow, having lost my beloved husband almost four years ago in Afghanistan! He is my hero and I miss him so very much❤️

I am originally from Colorado but currently live in North Carolina with my two dogs, Cooper and Bonnie! During the summer I reside at my beach house in Nags Head!

My dogs are both Labrador retrievers and litter mates! 🐶 One chocolate female and a black male who is also a service dog! I have Type I diabetes and he has saved my life several times! My dogs are my best friends and Cooper is by my side always...

I am looking forward to reading stories and poems here and to making new friends...💜
