After receiving a bachelor’s in Interior Design from Michigan State University, Danae discovered her passion for Architectural Hand Renderings. After three years of work experience in the commercial design industry, she relocated to Saint Louis which was a perfect time to launch Danae Designs and exclusively offer Architectural Hand Renderings. Renderings can be used as a tool to illustrate a design when words fall short. Any style home can be featured in a Watercolor Home Portrait and can capture lasting memories to be enjoyed by family, friends or favorite clients.
Leveraging her skills with watercolor, Danae enjoys Plein Air painting in her spare time and has entered numerous local Plein Air competitions. Painting for herself in between client projects allows her to continue to fine tune her craft and expand her horizons all while pursuing her passion.Exhibits: ArtPrize, The B.O.B. in Grand Rapids, MI, 2009 ArtPrize, Biggy B in Grand Rapids, MI, 2010 Betten Imports Gallery, Grand Rapids, MI, 2010 ArtPrize, GRPD in Grand Rapids, MI, 2011 Old Orchard Gallery, Websters Grove, Saint Louis, MO, 2014 Saint Louis Artist Guild, Summer Regional, MO, 2014 Longview Farm House Gallery, Town and Country, MO, 2014 Tour de Saint Louis en Plein Air, MOPAPA ArtShow at Creative Space, Saint Louis, MO, 2014 Awards: Saint Louis Artist Guild, Fall into Painting Plein Air 2013, “Best in Show” Webster’s Community Arts Foundation, Paint Websters Plein Air 2014, “Old Websters Award” Golden Hills of Louisiana, MO, Plein Air 2014, “People’s Choice Award” 5th Annual Impressions of Town and Country, MO, 2014 “People’s Choice Award” Augusta Plein Air Competition 2016, 3rd place, Private Estate in Washington, MO Augusta Plein Air Competition, 2016, “Honorable Mention” in Augusta, MO Augusta Plein Air Competition, 2016, “Honorable Mention” in New Melle, MO Augusta Plein Air Competition, 2016, “Honorable Mention” in Defiance, MO Webster’s Community Arts Foundation, Paint Websters Plein Air 2016, “Old District Award” 6th Annual Impressions of Town and Country, MO, 2016, 2nd Place Augusta Plein Air Competition, 2017, “Best in Show” in Defiance, MO Societies: DesignSpeak, Team Member American Society of Architectural Illustrators, Associate Member
