Danielle Kroll grew up in the weird and wonderful state of New Jersey. She was lucky to have a charmed childhood spending afternoons playing in the woods and weekends with her quirky Polish Grandparents. When she was nine, she won acrylic lessons from a local artist and has been painting ever since.
Danielle attended college at Tyler School of Art, which was located on an old estate right outside of Philadelphia. Her first job was in Anthropologie’s Art Department where she designed branding collateral and created illustrations for marketing campaigns. In 2012, after a long hike through California, she left her job and moved to Brooklyn to pursue a freelance career.
Danielle’s present body of work includes illustrations for publishing projects, stationery, textile designs, ceramics, product development and personal paintings. No matter what her medium is, Danielle’s playful style aims to make your average day a little bit brighter. She’s particularly inspired by her childhood memories, past decades–especially mid-century art and design, flowers, the outdoors, road trips and thrift shops.
