Danielle Mbenda is a Texas artist, born in Cameroon and based in Austin with nothing more than passion, a laptop, and a dream. She is a self-taught artist with a strong background in Architecture, IT Software Development, and Therapeutic Art. As a little girl, she has always had that passion for doing things on her own in a unique way. Rather than going with the same old or following the convention when it comes to outfits and accessories, Danielle was always been interested in getting something new, unique, that no one hasn't seen before. In fact, she designed her school outfit when she was 12 years old. Transitioning from a young girl to a woman wasn't quite easy with her life experience as a victim of violence. Danielle is committed to supporting and empowering other victims. The artworks created are from a cultural perspective. She would like to showcase the fact that there's inherent strength, beauty, and values in African background and heritage. There is the firm believe that Culture is the possibility of creating, renewing, and sharing values, the inspiration which increases the vitality of humanity. Danielle believes that valuable cultural exchange is mutual and offers the opportunity for deeper and prolonged commitment between people, and encourages responsible global citizenry.
