      anielle was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario and took to drawing and painting under the guidance of her grandmother, who had studied art at OCAD. In 2010, the young artist relocated to North Vancouver, BC., where she studied computer animation at Think Tank Training Centre.  She worked following as a modeling and texture artist in the film industry, before returning to her home- town for a break.  During this period, she began to focus more on traditional art, while continuing with freelance work in computer graphics and animation, creating digital models and sculptures. Danielle especially enjoys working with watercolour and experimenting with other mediums like pen and ink and compressed, tinted charcoal.  Early in 2020 she took part in an artist residency in Japan and began learning sumi ink painting.

      er personal style is a reflection of her travels and exposure to wildlife and nature through her life experiences.  She draws inspiration from the many subjects she's encountered on her travels across Canada’s vast backcountry and adventures overseas. The more exotic destinations, such as India and Nepal, have influenced her style, with the addition of bright colours.  Danielle’s goal is to create expressive, colourful paintings and original artwork that will intrigue those who get to discover and enjoy her talents. An award winning artist, Danielle hopes to move others towards experiencing her subject matter in a new way.
