Hi! I’m Dana Benz, the founder of Dana Marie Portraits LLC. I am a 30 year old business owner and artist from Bethel, Connecticut. I draw hyper realistic portraits with graphite and colored pencils. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to draw. Time just melts away when my pencil hits the paper. As a child, I was always looking at pictures in coloring books and drawing them freehand. In high-school, at fifteen years old, I had discovered my true love - portrait drawing. I am self taught and have learned from trial and error. I have been incredibly dedicated and have persisted through the toughest circumstances of my life. I am proud to say that I am achieving my dreams!

About 7 years ago, one of my best friends asked me what I would do with the rest of my life if I could do anything. My answer came instantly - I would draw portraits! But then I realized it was more than that, I loved seeing how moved people were by portraits. For me, there is no better feeling than watching their eyes light up and fill with tears as they see my creation. I hope to spread love, healing and kindness through my work and to empower people everywhere to pursue their deepest hopes and passions. I genuinely cannot wait to work with you, to hear your stories and to create something meaningful in your life.
