Artists Bio

Neurodivergent (ADHD/Dyslexic) artist Danielle explores her practice and interest with Fine Arts and Social Practice. Her roles as an artist interconnects people and art through, place, nature and wellbeing, advocates for positive change and conversations around mental health awareness, hidden disability inclusion and reducing landfill for climate emergency.

Her multidisciplinary approaches explore a variety of media through 3D installations, film, contemporary textiles and illustration, via interaction through dialogue, fun, doodles and play, exploring identity, resulting in creative conversational pieces and interventions that she also shares through educational activities.

Using autoethnography in her approaches, she often reaches anecdotal systems that art and wellbeing can achieve, sparking inspiration with workshops to help not only creative practical art skills but to reduce stress levels and increase wellbeing which cross-feeds into her art practice, her teaching and co-collaborative workshops...

Danielle has moved coast to coast from Blackpool to Dalton-in-Furness, Cumbria.
