Danielle Grandi’s last formal art class was a tenth grade course in sketching fruit and random bowls, but every life change since has provided inspiration for countless personal art projects, none of which involve fruit or bowls. She loves to work in colored pencils on watercolor paper, in part because it adds a rough textural element, and also because it’s too frightening to actually use watercolor paint on watercolor paper. Someday she plans on taking a course in watercolors and hopefully overcoming her fear of them. Until that day, however, she will continue to produce colorful, whimsical creations much to the delight of her family and friends. She lives in Richmond, Virginia with her husband and her two sons, who steal her colored pencils.
