Crazy. Funny. Beautiful. For that light-hearted place in your soul just when you need it.

A lot of Running Duck Studio artworks have an Australian theme present with lifestyle and animal drawings. The mostly black and white drawings have a whimsical, playful feel but most have a hint of cartoon from years drawing for Walt Disney. Special moments are captured from everyday life, country living and wildlife.

Strong Australian theme can also be found in the outback country scenes of the back drops for the digital collages. In these digital works the photos have been collected from my travels across Australia, in an exploration of its many faces. The pieces represent classic Australia; the humour, bush, wildlife and rust.  My I love Australia themed photography can be viewed at:

Ink and brush is serious fun, in its simplest form. Starting with only a basic idea (sometimes none) the free will of the ink as it splashes almost with its own agenda, shapes the artwork into something with a sense of freedom, emotion and movement

These artworks have a whimsical playful feel and only a select number of artworks are available as limited edition prints.

For those who have no hanging space left or just love to live in a creative day to day world, a select number of designs are available on pillowcases, T’Shirts, Tote bags and Cushion covers.

OMG Danielle this is perfection !!! U did it Would it be possible to pick all 3 up - or am I being to demanding ha ha Xxxxx thank u thank u thank u She's gunna cry 😭


My name is Danielle B Latta, and I am the founder and owner of this art studio and mobile art gallery. I have lived in the outback, the coast and the inner city but now reside on a  small lush green hillside near a small town  just outside of Brisbane Australia, and love every minute of it.

A creative since I was able to pick up a pencil and brush, an artist since my first portrait sale in 1988.

Skills and styles of drawing have been shaped through my early work as portraitist while acquiring my Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design and my work at Walt Disney Animation Australian. My portrait work gave me an eye for fine detail while my Disney work strengthened my drawing stroke. Early years of working and living in the City of Sydney (and all that comes with the lifestyle) allowing me time to explore arts emotion, power and ultimately a passion for my art.

Hi Danielle, I have absolutely fallen in love with your work so I’m creating a timeline of our family using your pictures. I already have ‘Dad and I’ and ‘Strong Connection’. Next I’d like to get: A man and woman together A woman with 2 little girls (however, I suspect my husband may contact you regarding this for a Mother’s Day gift too, so I don’t want to double up) Could you send me a photo of any pictures you have that might suit those stages of life? Alternatively, how much would you charge if I commissioned you to do one that looked more like us? Next I’ll be looking to incorporate our pets into the timeline.
