Artist Biography:

My name is Dannielle, and I'm 27.

Drawing and painting have always interested me. At school there was usually one of my paintings / drawings on display in the corridor, and drawing was a significant part of my science and architecture studies. I took particular pleasure in making sketches of religious sculptures.

However, I never pursued drawing and painting as a career. I am a full time HSQE Advisor in a company based in Nottinghamshire, so naturally never get much of a chance to focus on my artworks.

I found this website as an opportunity to share my artworks with others, in the hope that they can enjoy them as much as I do creating them.

I predominately work with charcoals and chalk, but love using oil paints when I get the time.
