Head to the Vault at Mood Tapas Bar to see work by Allison Daniell for November’s First Friday!
Allison Daniell wasn't born in Colorado, but she got here as fast as she could. A resident of Colorado Springs since 2005, Allison has been a part of the growing arts scene and has been able to witness it grow in what it is today. She's had solo art exhibits here since 2007 at galleries such as COPPeR and Kreuser Gallery.
Allison grew up drawing and painting (a lot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and received her BFA in Graphic Design in 2005. She moved from Tennessee to Colorado the day after graduation, and has never looked back! Allison began her photography business, Stellar Propeller Studio, back in 2008 and was able to start doing photography full-time in 2015. She focuses primarily on commercial work, helping everyone from big brands like Southwest Airlines and Panasonic with ad campaigns to the small businesses of Colorado Springs tell their stories and promote their goods and services.
Although the majority of her work focuses around the business side of things, Allison is actually most intrigued by story : hearing them, absorbing them, and telling them with her camera. This collection of work is from her travels and has never been on display before.
Allison was named a 2019 Rising Star by the Colorado Springs Business Journal and Photographer of the Year in 2020 by the American Advertising Federation.
