Saint John-based creator, Danielle Manuel, is creating and learning in the unceded and traditional territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaw Nations. Her self-taught work holds many forms including digital art, mixed media, acrylic painting, felting, photography, and most recently, spore printing. She has experience in designing and creating art for an annual publication of poetry, designing album covers, large scale acrylic painting, murals, custom portraits, and other adventures.
Danielle seeks inspiration from the interconnectedness of nature and is a passionate student of the environment. She is fascinated by fungi, birds, music, and radical self-love. She is fueled by wonder, soda water, her eagerness to learn, and her excitement to share. Her distinctive style expresses colour, joy, contrasts, and playfulness.
Danielle creates and sells custom digital art online where she also shares her escapades in raising monarch butterflies, birding, and mushroom hunting.
