Danielle LaGoy is a painter and designer from the Adirondack region of New York, where her Nana taught her to paint at the ripe age of 6. During college, she spent a summer exploring the western coast of Ireland, where she painted in plein air every day for months. She's taught painting workshops as a Resident Artist at The Resort at Paws Up, a luxury ranch in western Montana. She's shown in galleries in New York, Chicago, Missoula, and Park City. 

Her time is spent working on paintings in her studio and scolding her dog for licking up the paint drips. She currently lives and works in Portland, OR with her dog, Louie.
