People: Danielle Joy McKinney
The story of New Jersey native, Danielle McKinney connects with me as she illustrates her raw and natural energy from photography to acrylic painting. During the pandemic Danielle found herself confined in her home (some can still relate in 2022) as she quietly paints self-portraits. As we all know restriction and limits can unleash our god-given ability to express ourselves; through art, music or literature.
Mckinney’s reclusive moments of nudity, solidarity and deep self-reflection of emotional and mental state, come alive in her work. "Moods that have simmered all along as her new recipe arrives at the perfect temperature. Mckinney’s legacy is already rich heartfelt interpretations and universal sensibility." says Juxtapose.
