The DynaSmiles® brings excitement into everyday life with vibrant character illustrations bursting with color on a range of high-quality products like journals, planners, and apparel.


Our mission is simple yet deeply meaningful: to craft beautiful, original character art that serves as a source of inspiration and sparks joy while navigating each day.

Since 2009, our brand has celebrated the joy and beauty of black women (and their loved ones) with uplifting representation on high-quality paper goods, apparel and more.

Thank you for choosing The DynaSmiles® to shine a light of inspiration on your personal journey. It's my privilege to be the artistic hands, mind and heart behind each piece you find here, where you're celebrated, encouraged and loved. May a smile be your reminder that everything will be ok. --Daveia Odoi, Illustrator

Hi, my name is Daveia Odoi, pronounced Day-Vee-Yah Oh-Doy, and I'm the owner and illustrator behind The DynaSmiles®. 

This brand was born back in 2009 through the loving push of my husband. After witnessing how often I resorted to making my own invitations and greeting cards (since I couldn't find anything that represented me), he encouraged me to be the solution I was looking for.  So, together we learned how to offer my art on tangible goods like what you see here and have been doing so ever since.

In April 2020, my family changed forever when my husband and best friend, the father of our two children, died from cancer.  He was my number one supporter in life and in business who worked tirelessly to ensure our family's success.

In honoring his legacy of being the ultimate encourager, this brand will continue onward as the Lord allows. 

We've always considered our work here as instruments of hope embodied in something so simple yet so profound as an inviting smile. That's why we create these products to brighten your day because life at times can be extremely hard. I understand this now more than ever before. My experiences have shown me that having various sources of inspiration is absolutely necessary to make it through each day. 

With that in mind, thank you for choosing The DynaSmiles® as one of your sources of daily inspiration. Creating these happy products that reflect your joy is my extreme pleasure.

Rest in heaven to my heart's most treasured and beloved friend, Edmund Odoi (1979 - 2020). I love you forever and always. Your smile will remain my favorite and like you've always encouraged us to do, let us "keep moving forward". Until we meet again...
