Starting at a young age, Daniella Willett-Rabin has lived in various places in the world, studying both music and art. After graduating from a visual arts high school in Salamanca, Spain, Daniella returned to the United States and received a Bachelor in Fine Arts in Illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Daniella’s art has been described as fanciful, colorful, and joyful. It creatively conveys the positive energy and vibrancy found in life. She predominantly works in acrylic, but also employs a variety of media including oil and watercolor.
Daniella recently relocated to Atlanta and is currently a freelance artist and illustrator.
“I grew up in a musical family and spent a large portion of my formative years living in various places in the world, studying both percussion and art. Being heavily influenced by the visual and cultural landscapes of Spain and Guinea, West Africa, I feel there is a strong correlation between the rhythmic patterns found in drumming and my love for visual patterns reflected in my paintings. I try to capture and express the emotions and feelings we often experience while enveloped in the warm embrace of music. My most recent experiences and travels have led to a growing appreciation and fascination with architecture. I have chosen to mirror this via the creation of city collages. I tend to focus on the small details of the imagery, but prefer to work on a large canvas. I’m very excited to see where my art journey takes me. I intend to continue to evolve as an artist, assimilating new perspectives and experiences into my work.”
