Danielle “deo” Owensby does a lot of things. She’s a photographic artist, a social activist, a writer, an educator, and a globe-trotter. She loves to travel the world with at least three cameras in hand– yeah, she is pretty extra– and has a passion for learning languages (even though she is awful at it.)
She works full-time as an educator, and when she isn’t in the classroom, she is a culture writer for The Femme Oasis. She is also the founder and editor of The Jade Plant Project, a publication dedicated to giving sexual assault survivors a space to express themselves.
Deo holds a BA in English and a BFA in Studio Arts, awarded by Michigan State University, and a MFA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago. She has won numerous awards for her photography and has been in several publications and exhibitions around the globe. When she isn’t hunched over her laptop, she enjoys crafting, talking to her plants, running, and taking naps.
