Introducing a New Creative Team Member!

by Hero Arts March 26, 2020 35 Comments

With all of the stress and hardship happening in our world these days, we are beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to share some wonderful news! We first began to notice Daniel West when he shared some hilariously unexpected and twisted takes on our kits. He continued to wow us with gorgeous cards using our products, sharing them on his Instagram account as well as his blog, Del & Artie, so we invited him to join our release blog hops. Today he joins our Creative Team as a regular contributing member. We will be honored to share his work here on the Hero Arts blog!

Let's get to know Daniel:

Hi, Daniel West, here. I started making cards in March 2018 when a friend of mine introduced me to the craft. Putting ink to paper with stamps and markers thrilled me. A few months later, I found out about Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Card Kits and subscribed in June. I cannot pass them up. Besides stamping, I also enjoy stamping and stamping. My wife and I love in Providence, Rhode Island, with our three kids Helena, Jake and Micah. Connect with me on all the socials with handle - delandartie.

Here are a few of our favorite recent cards that he's shared on his blog:


Welcome to the Hero Arts family, Daniel! We can't wait to see the inspiration you have in store.

Daniel, I am so excited about you being a part of the HA team. I just love your work. You are so creative…we need more men who are artistic and love paper crafting. May you feel a warm welcome from all and enjoy the collaboration with those around you. Great blessings to you!!

So nice to see a male artist represented on the team! It serves as encouragement for other men exploring this exciting area of crafting, such as my self.

As a nurse I am familiar with being, often, the only man in the room (or on the unit). Men and women each carry a unique perspective, so it is nice to have the two genders presenting together.

Thank you, Hero Arts, for all you are doing to build community, commerce, and celebrating the creative spark that twinkles in each one of us!

What uplifting news!! I’ve admired quite a few of his cards and gotten some great laughs as well! His recent crash & burn with the Heroscapes comes to mind, as does the stunning grayscale Japanese mountains he did with this month’s kit. Congratulations Daniel, I look forward to seeing what your fresh perspective will bring to the design team!!
