Danielle Blackwell is a Multimedia Artist
Danielle’s artwork continues to evolve as she is drawn to transforming familiar or overlooked materials into thoughtful reflections of internal experiences. Moving around a number of places in the U.S. and even overseas in Turkey for a couple years, Danielle was exposed to a wide array of cultures early on. She has always had a passion for Art and loves cross pollinating mediums whenever possible. The biggest benefit of moving around at a young age was adapting to new cultures. It introduced the notion of looking at everyone and everything as an opportunity to consider new ideas and perspectives. Interpreting those thoughts and ideas through clothing, language and drawing was a great early exercise in understanding the changing world around her. Danielle studied Costume/ Stage design and Fine Art at Cornish College of Fine Arts and Apparel Design at Seattle Community College. Danielle has also studied with local Designer Mark Mitchell of, ‘Burial Designs’ Which included working on projects for ‘Angels in America’, shown at Intiman Theatre Seattle, Dressing the Band Shabazz Palaces and Seattle based performer, Cherdonna Sinatra in their debut show, ‘Worth My Salt’. She has also studied with Crystal Barbre a Seattle based Artisan specializing in oil paintings and mural work.
