Daytona Bleach Art House was conceived by husband and wife duo David and Nealey Gail. From the West Coast to the East Coast, they moved from Los Angeles to Daytona Beach in 2018 and have called it home ever since. Their love for Daytona Beach has inspired them to contribute to the local community through creativity and collaboration. Their purpose is to utilize the skills and talents they have acquired over the years to give back to their new community. "We are confident that Daytona Beach is growing and evolving, and our goal is to help represent that positive change."
David attained his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design in 2004, where he graduated at the top of his class. He moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where he learned the ropes in many different environments. He did it all from the ground floor in the screen printing and embroidery shops to presenting design concepts in corporate business meetings. His work has been used by iconic venues such as The Ryman Auditorium, The Grand Ole Opry, and Bridgestone Arena. During his time in Nashville, he designed apparel and marketing materials for professional and NCAA sports teams, private and public universities, and national corporate chains.
In 2009, David moved to Santa Monica, California as a freelance graphic designer and painter. While graphic design is his primary focus, many homes and apartments throughout Los Angeles and Nashville house his interior pop art murals. David landed gigs working on promotional material for Verizon, Continental Tire, Disney/Pixar's Up, Hulk Hogan, Joan Jett, The Wayan Brothers, KISS, The Bellagio Hotel & Casino, and many more.

Nealey Gail has always focused on community development in various ways; youth mentor, event coordinator, and creative rehabilitation specialist are a few of the titles she has held. Nealey volunteered with the Los Angeles Skid Row Housing Trust and has a passion for preventing and reducing homelessness. She is the Program Director for The Legacy Book, a life review program used to create a historically accurate reference book intended to be passed down from generation to generation. The American Society on Aging nationally recognized the Legacy Book for its positive impact on the growing aging population. Nealey is keen on developing meaningful opportunities for engagement that enhance the well-being of the communities in which she resides. In 2017, she received her Master's degree in Sociology.
These days she devotes a large chunk of her time integrating music, photography, and fashion into her daily practices. Nealey focuses on one-of-a-kind, sustainable fashion methods. She finds discarded items within her community and transforms them into wearable art. Nealey is also an internationally published photographer, Getty Images contributor, and nationally toured musician. The Alzheimer's Association featured her musical composition in Adam E. Stone's ballet, "A Life Unhappening."
Daytona Bleach Art House is the culmination of David and Nealey Gail's individual work and creative passions merging. Within a unique urban landscape nestled near the sea, Daytona Bleach takes a holistic lifestyle approach to creativity and production with a strong community development commitment. Our mission at Daytona Bleach Art House is to foster cultural and creative community collaborations and partnerships. The Art House is continually evolving and adapting, not only because business and design Do Not stay still, but also because there are always new ideas to explore.
