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 and portrait artist based in Jacksonville, Florida. In addition to being an artist (and more importantly) I am a wife, a 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/brand designer helping others with their creative strategies at Design Kangaroo —a design agency I started with my daughter Gabby who is an amazing social media marketer.

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

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
~ Psalm
