My creative education began at 7 years old when I attended fine art classes for drawing and painting, and continued with a BFA in Graphic Design at St. John’s University. There I participated in (and eventually creative directed for) the student-led advertising agency, working on campaigns for the university and local businesses. This experience led me to a career as a marketing designer in NYC where I worked with clients such as World’s Strongest Man, Miss Universe, NFL and Sneakercon.

I currently hold the role of Senior Art Director for a data-driven advertising agency in Richmond, VA. Here (remotely), I develop brand identities, create for print and digital ad campaigns, and am most sought after for my skills in strategy, illustration, and motion design. Outside of agency design work and illustration commissions (my current area of focus being illustration for apparel), I create original artworks on paper, canvas & sneakers. When not pursuing my creative outlets, I can be found by a lake catching fish, practicing yoga, or adding a tattoo to my collection.

Danielle is one of the most hard-working and passionate individuals I know, and will not let you down. She goes above and beyond in all of her work and is always open to constructive criticism. She really studies a brand and dives deep into their personality before she begins her work for them. I would recommend Danielle to any company as she was such an amazing asset to our team.

Artist Statement

I am endlessly inspired by nature and the world around me.


My fine art works are highly influenced by what I observe and document outdoors—I love to depict textures, patterns, and tiny details that often go unnoticed. I take what I see and amplify it—with detailed dotwork, linework, vibrant colors, and/or exaggerated perspectives & features. I hope you will walk away from my pieces feeling more connected to and inspired by the beautiful things that exist alongside us.
