NEW PAINTINGS—see today’s release


Hey There

Danita Brooks — photographer, coastal painter, and portrait artist.

About Danita Brooks...
it's nice to meet you.

I am a cross between an impressionist and realist painter based in Jacksonville, Florida. In addition to being an artist (and more importantly), I am a wife, mom of three, and a dog mom.

Life is busy. I paint to feed my soul and as a reminder to pause and look at the beauty God made for us to enjoy.

My goal is to create images for you that reflect fun, memories, movement, and joy (with a few historically or nerdy facts throw into the mix).

As a left and right-brained creative, I experiment with many different methods painting mainly in oils, acrylics, watercolor, and occasionally mixing my photography with painting. 

You can also find my work as a web designer and photographer helping others with their brand strategies at Design Kangaroo.

I’m honored you are here—take a look around, see the latest works as I create them, and join me behind the scenes on Instagram.

This Inspires My Journey

“What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.” ~ Matthew  18:12-13
So what do you think? 
I believe we are all sheep—wandering off at times. But the beauty is knowing there is a Shepherd guiding us, never leaving us behind, and a love our minds can not completely comprehend.  
My journey is inspired by this curiosity and awe of life, and the beauty made by the ultimate Creator.
