danielle nelisse

Danielle Nelisse is an artist and textile designer. She hand paints images using oil paint on large canvas, has them professionally scanned, and creates artwork for wallpaper, murals, fashion, and textiles. 

Nelisse works out of her art design studio in Kihei, Maui, but was raised in Detroit, Michigan. Known for her adventurous spirit both in life and on the canvas, she takes risks with her art, often experimenting with vivid colors to create custom wallpaper and textile collections. She is also one of America’s seasoned Immigration Attorneys. She knows from experience that when sensitive people feel they are not free to express their emotions, it compromises their emotional and physical health. By creating abstract paintings she reflects her collectors' emotions back to them to celebrate their individuality. Danielle has had formal training in art, law, criminal investigation, and urban planning. 

As an immigration attorney she has had years of direct experience with the impact of policy changes on her national and international clientele, and uses her art to depict imagery associated with global issues. As a former private investigator, Danielle has developed a unique perspective on human action and interaction.

After studying law and art in Florence, Italy, Vienna, Austria, and Strasbourg, France, Nelisse studied oil painting and composition with internationally renown fine artist Herb Dubin. Most recently she has been a mentee of American Master artist Hyacinthe Kuller Baron.
