about danielle

Danielle Mio Sogno was exposed to the arts since early childhood. The daughter of internationally-known expressionist artist betty jean hoaglund, she was taught the importance of incorporating art into her life from the time she could pick up a paintbrush. 

her mediums of choice are acrylics and watercolor, but collage is another of her loves, and many of her works are mixed media. She created the "unraveled by danielle" line of textiles in 2020, during the pandemic. It started as just a way to surprise friends and family across the country with custom knitted hats, blankets, and scarves but quickly became popular items in the retail marketplace. 

Danielle was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois and currently splits her time between Dallas, Texas, and Chicago. Her art has been in exhibitions at the TVAA Gallery, and Clique Gallery, among others. Her mural work can be found at the CTA Green Line in Oak Park, Illinois and at Millhouse Muralfest in McKinney, Texas.

She holds a Master's in Creative Writing and Literature from Harvard University in Cambridge, MA, and is a writer and visual artist. She founded a real estate brokerage firm that operates in three states, teaches creative writing through 826 Dallas Project, and volunteers as a professional street clown in the Dallas Holiday Parade. Danielle is also a licensed foster parent in the state of Texas.
