Born in Virginia Beach, Virginia, the daughter of a strong mother and an active duty Naval helicopter pilot, Danielle grew up as a citizen of the world. She moved to New Orleans from Orlando and fell in love with the grit and grace of the Big Easy. Danielle has exhibited work in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa, Orlando, Atlanta, Washington D.C., and Buffalo. She completed an 8-month artist residency, SALON organized by the Arts Council New Orleans.
After her first public mural the artist shifted from the gallery landscape to work focused intently on the public sphere. Her vision is to create indelible murals of close relationships between people and the environment in the south. In 2020, her goal is to paint a wall that changes the New Orleans skyline. There is a journey on Instagram @miss_hein.
In 2015, Miss Hein enrolled in the 200 HR Baptiste Affiliated Yoga Teacher Training. There, she met a community of people who inspired a yoga instruction practice, a first public mural, a 2-year Ambassadorship with Lululemon, and the skills to develop and transition a mental health practice into Covid19.
Arts Council New Orleans partnered with Canal Place Shopping Studios to offer free studio and exhibition space. Over the course of eight-month residency, Miss Hein explored creative practices to activate the studio space through open studio tours, exhibitions, performances, headdress workshops, and more. Visitors can experience SALON studios and visit with artists during gallery hours.
Urban South was selected with 21 other breweries in the country to participate in the 2019 Jameson Caskmates program. Urban South received Jameson whisky barrels to age beer in. The beer was showcased in the local market through distribution and also at the 2019 Great American Beer Festival in Denver Colorado!
With the anticipated release of this specially crafted beer, a release party was held at Urban South Brewery with several hundred people in attendance throughout the beautiful day. Miss Hein was selected as one of the local artists to live-paint the barrels during the event (!) and hold a silent auction of their work for benefiting her charity of her choice, NOLA to Angola.
