Danette Sperry

Danette Sperry

Born in 1962, Danette Sperry has been creating some form of art since her childhood. For the last several decades, she has worked as a full-time artist creating sculptures and furniture pieces from salvaged wood & found objects, as well as paintings.

In 2015, Danette began experimenting and incorporating textural & relief elements in her paintings. What started as a way to have more freedom to create whatever was in her mind without being limited by her found object work, developed into raised-relief mixed media paintings. The entire process of building the wooden structure, applying & carving the textural elements and painting the images can take up to several months, but for Danette, it’s a labor of love.

Danette has a spiritual connection to nature, which serves to inspire her work. The beautiful garden she has created around her home and the birds & other creatures that visit her garden are often the focal points of her paintings.

Danette often says becoming an artist wasn’t a conscious decision for her, but rather that art chose her. She lives in rural Georgia and calls her house Sperryville, where it’s only a short walk to her studio and the only traffic is the birds.
