Talented 10-year-old artist doing amazing things



My name is Daniella Soje

I am 10 years old, I attend Lara Day nursery and primary school and I am in primary 6. I love all artworks generally, I love music, dancing, acting and drawing. I can remember when I was little and I would write stories and illustrate them in drawing and then I would tell my Mum to print them so that I can sell them and that was at the age of 5 or 6. No one inspired me into the Art world but myself, yet a lot of people encouraged me.

My favorite subject is Music but as I said, I love art works generally. Recently, I started focusing more on art and then I did a toothpick collage at school and when I got home I started my own match sticks collage which was inspired by my younger sister. My Brand name is Daniella art Studio. I like to create images that adults and kids would love. I also take my time to do it so that my art works can come out nice. Each piece takes like 3 hours to create, I draw my images before I do the collage.

I also get to teach my younger sister, kids willing to learn. I do this because I have the knowledge and skill. I love selling my art work, it feels good to make something and sell to people. Entrepreneurship is a big deal for me that is why I work hard every day to make my art work better so people that appreciate it can buy it. My Aunt has been my support and she has taught me a lot of marketing skills and I believe Danielle art studio will go far because I’m ready to put in my best in my work.


Arts is fun and I can multitask, I mean I can combine it well with my studies. I want to be the kind of person that makes other kids step up and work harder.

I want kids out there to work hard to achieve whatever they want in life, although when I started it seemed a bit hard but I didn’t give up. Life rewards those who work hard at it.
