Danielle is a freelance illustrator based in Scotland. Danielle creates work inspired by nature, music and writing. Bees, birds and plants are her favorite subjects. Danielle uses watercolour and Caran D'ache crayon make her illustrations, then works digitally to create layers and texture.
Danielle graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a BA (Hons) in Illustration, 2013.
Since graduating, she has worked on a variety of projects linking to nature. These include working with Edinburgh Zoo and RZSS to produce bird inspired merchandise; working with the Royal Military Tattoo as their artist in residence, creating imagery for the 2013 'Year of Nature' Tattoo; and taking part in Aberdeen's Wild Dolphin project, painting a life size dolphin sculpture which was auctioned to raise money for Whale and Dolphin Conservation.
Most recently, Danielle worked with Friends of the Earth to create a children's book highlighting the crisis of the bee. The book illustrates an adventure to find a new home for a homeless bee, and can be viewed at www.homelessbee.co.uk
