Her love for detail shows in her paintings.  Danielle is an award winning artist, juror and watercolour instructor and she showcases her work in solo shows and galleries.  She loves teaching watercolour and finds great satisfaction from seeing participants’ skill and passion for the medium grow.

Participants will be encouraged to ask questions throughout.
