About DANITA BROOKS

Hey there!

I am an impressionistic coastal painter and portrait painter 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 remind others to stop and look around at the beauty God made for us to enjoy.

I work from my home studio and the beach, painting images of the sea, animals, and subjects to evoke a sense of nostalgia. I aim to create images to reflect fun memories, movement, and joy.

You need space to leave the rush of life for just a moment. Or, on the flip side, a fountain of nostalgia to take you back to a time when joy was your first thought.

I paint mainly in oils, acrylic, and occasionally in watercolor. As a left and right-brained creative, I dive into many different methods and love to tap into my “nerdy” side through concepts or techniques. Soon you can also find my work as a web/brand designer at Design Kangaroo (a design agency I am starting with my daughter Gabby—website coming soon :).

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.
