I am Donté Janae and I am an emerging artist from Denver! I have been painting since 2013 and I also have a BA in Studio Arts from CU Boulder. In January of 2017, I decided to create art full-time. The inspiration behind my work is honestly whatever impulse God gives me. The magic begins once I grasp a concept or theme around what I want to paint. Oil is my preferred medium, and the expression of color is my main style of painting. The human anatomy has always been an interest of mine, specifically portraits and women. The most rewarding experience for me as an artist is the engagement between my art and the viewer. I love to hear different interpretations about my work and the personal connections it creates. I find it most intriguing when I am able to share my gift with others. One of my goals is to experience a fulfilling and prosperous life through my artistry, in hopes that my work will be an inspiration for others to pursue their passion.
