No one ever accused DC Langer of being ordinary.

Brooklyn born DC Langer was born an artist. She began painting as a child along side her artist mother, to fuel her growing creativity, or perhaps to stop her from talking so much, or eating all day.

DC's energy is clearly seen in her art-- the colors bounce clear off the canvas. Her fascination with light and dynamic color has formed the foundation for her art. Art critics always mention DC's unusually enhanced color perception. She notes "I see multiple colors in everything, including what most people see as solid color. When I look at my ceiling, I know it's white, yet I don't see white. I see multiple colors everywhere." Her keen color perception--and the fact that she is able to instinctively associate such mundane things such as numbers and names with color ("A" is cobalt blue and "6" is bright red)--is called "synaesthesia", which is the innate fusion of the senses--something that is shared with only one in 250,000 people.

DC's first commissioned assignment, at age 13, was the design of a 48'x14' New York City billboard, giving her international exposure. Many jobs followed, propelling DC into a career as an illustrator and fine artist.

A graduate of Boston's School of the Museum of Fine Arts, DC's work has been shown around the world and has won international acclaim in various competitions, including The Society of Illustrators, Art Direction Magazine and Studio Magazine's Silver Award.

A new resident of San Diego, DC is finding new inspiration and creative influence. "The paint dries faster here", she jokes. Check this site for new works from time to time. Please email DC with any comments.
