Daniel Allyn Lee is an artist and designer Based out of western Wisconsin, who makes paintings, illustrations, plush toys and other fun things. Born in Toledo, Ohio, Daniel moved to Wisconsin when he was 2 years old with his family. He had an interest in art at a very young age and eventually studied fine art at college in Seattle, Washington. Daniel’s interests in sewing and craft were ignited in high school, home economics courses and art class, soft sculpture projects.
He came back to sewing in 2007 soon after inheriting a sewing machine from his grandmother. Inspired by a variety of cartoons, comics, and video game characters, he worked through trial and error to design and sew his own plush monsters, dolls and hats. An interest in illustration and character design quickly developed. In 2007 Daniel began selling his toys online under the moniker of Happycloud Thunderhead.
In 2012 he decided to take a break from making plush and illustration to focus on Fine art. However, his interest in this work has been rekindled and while not necessarily focusing on plush Happycloud Thunderhead is back.
