Brooklyn-based DMC Original Art, an art and home decor business that bridges the gap between function and beauty, is the brainchild of Danielle M. Chéry. The company was recently honored with the 2021 Home Goods Business Of the Year Award.

Chéry is a self-trained artist and published author. Her journey began because she was intrigued by nature’s free form, and she creates art to reflect its wild, flowing beauty. A child with a self-proclaimed “wanderlust,” her spirit has led her to travel widely and the memories she treasures from exploring are embedded in her artwork.

Her path to discovering her talent blossomed while working for an arts-based nonprofit organization. Chéry’s curious mind helped her develop a fluid epoxy art technique that presents an evocative exploration of Earth’s color palette through mixed media. A student of mediation,  Chéry is dedicated to the practice and considers her art to be a moving meditation that is inspiring and accessible. 

Chéry’s home decor items include one-of-a-kind sets of coasters, serving trays, tables, mirrors, wall art and more. All pieces are made from wood and ceramics, with the use of acrylic paints, molding paste, resin and glass stones. Signature styles of DMC Original Art feature gold accents and materials. She shares her process on social media. Chéry also refurbishes older furniture and produces a constant flow of new creations. 

DMC Original Art is proudly listed in the Buy From a Black Woman online business directory and Chéry recently started working with United Way New York City’s Together We Thrive
