{DL} Art,Photography & Design Artist Highlight

Denise Luce of {DL} Art Photography & Design brings her creative touch and compassionate eye to everything she does. Her work is a reflection of the depths of her soul, her strength and her unique perspective of life.

Denise was born in Saarlouis, Germany. Growing up in Germany her parents always encouraged her creative endeavors, from drawing and painting to fantasy make-up, sculpting, and different types of mixed media projects. Denise’s family had a tremendous impact in her artistic development and in her appreciation for different art forms, mediums and disciplines. Baking is one of the creative art forms she has shared with her mother and grandmother ever since she was old enough to bake, which later turned into one of Denise’s passions…creative cake decorating. 

She moved to the United States when she was 25 and married the love of her life. Both she and her husband are artists. They share a love of the arts and are each other’s greatest supporters. Denise is a multifaceted artist with a wide scope including photography, graphic design, costume design, cake art, and developing company logos and branding. 

Denise’s passion for photography was born because of her love of the feminine form. She is an advocate for the beauty found in all women. She feels a commitment to helping women of all ages, shapes, colors, and sizes see their beauty by using her photography knowledge and skills. Denise shares, “I very strongly believe that everyone should have photos of themselves that they love. Too many of us, especially women, agonize too often over how bad/fat/ugly we look in photos. I could go on and on about this, but what I've found is: There is beauty in everyone and everything. Beautiful light, the right angle etc will show YOU what your family, friends see in you every day, but you have a hard time seeing. Celebrating femininity is very close to my heart, in all its shapes, sizes, styles, etc. from portraits, pin-up, boudoir to maternity sessions and more”.

She also loves Photoshop and it's creative possibilities. Denise enjoys using its editing capabilities to create photographs that take us to magical kingdoms, have us fleeing for our lives from Godzilla or turn us into our Klingon doppelganger. She’s also avid with more traditional applications like restoring family photos, touching up portraits and enhancing/balancing color. 

Denise draws inspiration for her art from a variety of places like nature, fantasy and the unconventional. She is equally as inspired in a field of flowers as she is in old graveyards...maybe it's the Gemini in her or maybe she can see beauty everywhere.

Her newest artistic and professional ventures have taken her more heavily into design both graphic and organizational. She works with organizations, companies and individuals to not only create their Logos but to help them with branding needs (business cards, t-shirts, banners, stickers etc.) and help guide their public media campaigns. One of her more recent satisfied clients was Crack Pies LA

Denise looks forward to embracing her creativity in many more forms and will be  exploring new outlets for it ... like painting, or creating a variety of props/costumes to use in her shoots, like headdresses, venetian masks, fans, dresses etc.
