About: As a Contemporary Applied Artist, Danielle explores the unexpected and often unseen beauty in nature and its process of decay. Her work captivates the ambiguity of what is considered beautiful. By mainly focusing on imperfections in nature, the artist independently creates a larger subject matter to explore, discuss and translate using a variety of mediums. Danielle uses detailed drawing as a fundamental process to capture ageing imperfections in organic objects, these are then later developed using a combination of both traditional and contemporary methods. Natural materials such as silk and leather are manipulated and transformed into bespoke theatrical wearable art-pieces. A range of methods including laser cutting, digital printing and water jet cutting enables the artist to create a unique, diverse and visually exciting final outcome.

DEVORE: Yesterday in our textile workshop we were asked to make a stencil using a geometric shape. I used a hexagon from when i looked at the shape and structure of a bee hive in my sketchbook. We stretched out our wool on to the dyeing table then placed the stencil on top where we want it to go. On top we placed a clean screen where we poured in the paste. using the squeegee we pulled the paste over the template 2 times. I moved my template in to a different position and completed the same process. When i was happy, i let it to try then baked it in the oven at 150 degrees for 5-10 minutes. The wool was then washed at 60 degrees so that it felted. When i removed it from the wash, the process was complete, i had devore wool. The paste keeps that section from felting in the wash.
