Danie Maio is an illustrator currently drawing and living in
Boston, Massachusetts.

She graduated with a BFA from the Lesley University College of Art and Design, where she currently teaches undergraduate students as an adjunct professor of the illustration department. 

When she’s doesn’t have her face in a sketchbook, you can find Danie either haunting a museum exhibition, reading her friend’s star charts, or listening to This American Life while eating fake meat. 

Danie enjoys making images that focus on her relationship to her mental health, making light of darkness, and the vulnerability and tenacity of being a very human person. She explores these themes, and others, all through the lens of playful color palettes and a soft style in her illustrations.
