Daniell Barton was born and raised on a farm of rural Indiana where she was influenced greatly in her creative process. She has lived in and/or traveled much of the country; and even out of the United States which provides her an unlimited amount of versatility that is seen in her portfolio.
Daniell recognized that she was gifted artistically, but like many artists she did not feel competent enough that people would like her art enough to support her. It was in 2019 that she was persuaded enough by family and friends that she was good and that she could. It was in April of 2019 that she felt she had a responsibility above all else to at least use her gift and leave it to the Lord if anything was to happen successfully with it. She immediately had her first pet portrait commission soon after the decision and has been a champion at pioneering her way through the art industry ever since.
In the fall of 2019, Daniell wanted to add to her credibility as an artist and wanted to go from a gifted artist to a skilled artist. Daniell enrolled in the Milan Art Institute’s year long Mastery Program. Daniell graduated from this program in 2020.
Some insight into Daniell’s process for where she gets ideas for her paintings that are not commission pieces; comes from her own life experiences of photographs that she has taken or from dreams that she has had. She also may be moved by a photograph that reminds her of her childhood and will ask permission from the photographer. Daniell feels her greatest art pieces are the ones that move individuals emotionally and/or spiritually. Through stories shared with her from individuals that love her art is how she arrived at her quote and tag line of “Explore the Beauty of Art Out-Loud”. Daniell says, “When you ‘Explore the Beauty of Art Out-Loud’; you have a spiritual, emotional journey that influences and alters your universe.”
Currently, Daniell is beginning work on several series for her solo exhibit in April of 2023 at Gallery 782. The exhibit will be called "New Beginnings". The exhibit will be full of botanicals, butterflies and spiritual enlightenment of new beginnings. After the exhibit she is going to focus on portraits: people, animals, and homes.
