Danial Powers is a mixed media artist. Her illustrative style has evolved over years as a mail artist, using media from marker, hand-carved blocks & stamps, pencil, inks, paint, and collage.
For the last several years, she’s been studying faces, and challenged herself to draw 100 faces over 100 days, since completing over 400. She has explored proportion and color, developing a whimsical style which captures the essence of the individual she brings to life on the page. She finds people endlessly fascinating, and loves working from candid shots. She’s grateful for every opportunity to get to know, and draw, new people. She lives in Renton with her husband, son, and three cats.
