Artist StatementMy work consists of old things left behind. Things from the past that have been abandoned or destroyed. I have always loved old houses and barns, and my work is more recently moving into the direction of everything old, from boats to cars.
Danielle was born and raised in the small town of Auburn, in upstate New York. She attended college at Cayuga Community College, and received two associates’ degrees. The first degree is in General Studies with and emphasis in art and the second degree is in Telecommunications. She is currently working towards her Bachelor’s Degree for Graphic Design, with a minor in Art Media at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. Danielle is a woman who has aspired to do many things. Bringing beauty into this world my means of photography has been her passion. She has always been an artist with her work ranging from drawing and painting, to sculpting. But photography is where she found her true passion. Danielle was a photographer for many years working in old time photos where she learned that the age of time is where she wanted her work to go. Danielle sees the beauty and life in many forgotten things this world has abandoned. Her passion is to bring the past to life, by creating photographs that remind us of what once was. Who we came from, and what they did for us. Many of her pieces show a death of time, but with Danielle’s work, she brings that piece to life, and reminds us of the things of the past. She has always loved what’s behind the stories of history and her work shows it. If there’s anything to be learned from her photos it’s that life does exist and we’re all a part of it.
