She is inspired by cityscapes and landscapes and enjoys pairing monochromatic schemes with vibrant Liberty of London prints. Danielle began in this medium as a way of memorialising the places she has loved; Chester, Liverpool, North Yorkshire and North Wales. She en joys replicating others' memorable locations and animals; adding her own twist with bold lines, prints and colours. Danielle uses free motion embroidery to 'draw' with her sewing machine.
Danielle was taught to sew by her grandmother and has since run a children's clothing business. She now concentrates on producing her artwork and tutoring.
Danielle is currently exhibiting works at Telford's Warehouse, Chester and Oriel Aeron, Aberaeron. She sells her work at Seren@Betty Berkins, Holywell & Artworks2, Betws-y-Coed.
