Dan Franklin is an Alabama based artist best known for her hyper realistic charcoal illustrations on recycled paper, matchbooks and wood. She creates her art through the meditative process of sharpening her focus on a single small piece of work and applying each stroke of charcoal with a delicate and practiced hand.
Working at such a small scale Danielle is able to transform memorable life size scenes and objects from cinema into miniature talismans of nostalgia. It is through these pieces and the shared memories movies allow us that she hopes to make a connection with her audience.
