ME

My name is Danielle B Latta, 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 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. My 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.

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 😭

THE ART

The Running Duck Studio has been inspired by “the obvious”, the hilarious Indian Runner Ducks that inhabit my beautiful piece of paradise. Leaf, Snowy, Lightning, Shimmer…I could go on, they are the most comical bunch of feathered friends. And such is the feel of these artworks, light and playful with a good dab of fantasy adding a uniqueness like no other.

Strong Australian themes are present in inkwork and with the use of outback country scenes as back drops for the digital collages. The photos have been collected from my travels across Australia, in an exploration of its many faces.  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 and emotion.  These artworks have a whimsical playful feel and are only sold as original artworks. No framed prints are available so you can be assured no one else will have your piece hanging on their wall. 

For those who have no hanging space left or just love to live in a creative day to day world, we have Hand inked Parasols and Pillowcase, and most designs are available on T’Shirts, Tote bags and cushion covers. These images are unsigned reproductions that increase the value of original works.

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.
