A designer and artist living near Lincoln, Nebraska, Danielle holds a BFA from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. She is a member of the Mid America Print Council, Lincoln Artists' Guild, and Association of Nebraska Art Clubs. She exhibits her work locally and regionally, and her work has been recognized with multiple awards. Danielle's work was selected for the 2021 Nebraska Artist Biennial and the Norfolk Arts Center's 14th Annual Juried Art Exhibition. In 2020, in a competition coordinated by the Nebraska Arts Council, her Mosaic design was chosen for Nebraska's first Support the Arts license plate. Her linocut print, Forever Home, was selected for the 2019 BFF Banner Art Project.
Danielle works mostly in linocut relief printmaking. Relief printing is a technique in which a printing surface (in this case linoleum) is cut away so that the remaining raised/uncarved surface is the image to be printed. That remaining flat surface is covered in a thin layer of ink using a brayer, also known as a roller. Paper is pressed onto the inked surface, and the raised flat surface transfers the image to the paper. Danielle creates prints both by hand-pressing using a tool called a baren, as well as by using an etching press. With thoughtful and purposeful execution, bold lines, and solid shapes, her style of art is heavily influenced by her experience and background in graphic design.
She is interested in conservation and science-informed artwork. Her work explores the natural environment, landscapes, and wildlife of the Great Plains. Danielle finds inspiration by exploring and interacting with nature. She aims to inspire viewers to investigate the subjects of her work and discover a deeper appreciation for the natural world.
