Inspired by folklore, 90's cartoons, decay, travel, femininity and the occult, Danielle's work weaves sugar, spice and everything nice, with trash, filth and decay, to create a world that is equally inviting and perturbed. In doing so, these two concepts mirror each other, feed into one another, and finally become one another. A place where the macabre shines, like light and truth, through sugarcoated illusions, and what was once discarded is rebirthed into nuanced beauty.

Within this space, ideas of utopias and dystopias are explored. Personal symbology creates a visual language, representing personal experiences, opinions and perspectives. Discarded found objects  hold meaning, and interlay ghost stories of the past with future interpretations. In this realm, opposites flow into one another, binaries are blurred, and magic is born.
