For Me By Dee | Featured Artist

Daniella Leo, or Dee, is the Melbourne artist behind For Me By Dee.

Dee’s formal training includes a Bachelor of Communication Design from RMIT. She is self taught in watercolour, and has a recognisable, signature style that is simple, clean and colourful.

Dee worked in the corporate jungle as a graphic designer. Spending her days creating graphics for lawn and gardening listings in the Yellow Pages, she knew she had so much untapped creative energy. Painting and creating were her passions, but she didn’t know where to focus that energy. During a point in her life when she felt creatively restricted and unhappy, Dee asked herself, “What am I going to draw?”

Animals brought a sense of happiness, humor, and simplicity. Animals didn’t come with issues – they served as an escape and brought joy. Dee decided to not only create animals that were visually appealing, but also bring to life interesting characters that exuded personalities of their own.

A play on “per me”, which means “for me” in Italian, Dee took a leap of faith to pursue her creative passion and For Me By Dee was born.

In a way, the characters and their stories represent different times in Dee’s journey.

Through these characters, we hope you find your story and celebrate the unique individual that is you.
