Danielle Kroll - Dark Florals

When I looked back on this painting I realized that it reminds me of a Polish vest my mom used to own. Similar to this one. She said she wore it in the Pulaski day parade when she was little. It was a small kids size or else I’d have wanted to keep it for myself!

Danielle Kroll - The Cabin

Since 2010 my art school friends have met at the same cabin during the same weekend in February. It’s a special time to just sit around and enjoy each other’s company. The cabin is right on Lake Wallenpaupack in the Poconos and the view is really  magical. I was able to get in some peaceful painting time on Saturday with my dear friend Jamie Straw. We talked about art while sharing a space heater and a kettle of tea. Can’t wait for next year!

Wedding Invite

Danielle Kroll - Wedding Invite

This is a wedding invitation that I worked on last year with a couple from Chicago. It’s the follow up invite to this save the date. I loved being able to incorporate some hand-done type and line work on these. The finals were letter-pressed with blue and gold ink. I didn’t get my hands on a physical copy but they looked beautiful in the photos!

Some cut-paper stationery I made last year for Kate Spade New York! The gold foil looks just lovely.

If you’re in (or near) soho this Wednesday stop by this Everlane event! I’ll be doing little ink paintings for everyone of something you carry in your bag. I really admire Everlane as a brand so I’m so excited to be a part of this. I hope to see some of you there!

Dog Portraits

January 8, 2015

My most sincere ‘thank you’ to everyone that bought a pet portrait this year. My favorite part about doing these paintings is hearing about the little quirks that makes each pet so unique. I included a few quotes from the owners that really made me smile.

 Cat people, yours are up next!

“He loves to cuddle and also has a kicked back attitude like ‘what’s up’.”

“Dizzy is probably the sweetest dog I’ve ever met and seems to have the most ‘human’ eyes I’ve ever seen on a dog.”

At Home in 2014 - Danielle Kroll

I recently offered this artwork as a free print if you follow me on instagram or if you’re on my email list. Thank you for the great response! I’m still working on addressing those envelopes. I’m thinking of doing something similar for Valentine’s Day so if you’re not already doing so… follow me on instagram here or join my mailing list at the foot of my website. Thank you to everyone for the support this past year!
