Born in London, Dani attended a Rudolph Steiner School before studying fashion in Brighton. She returned to her original love of painting and drawing, freelancing for many years an artist before setting up a publishing company where she worked as the principle artist and designer. After several years she left publishing and turned to painting full time.
In 2001 Dani opened The Art Shop, a studio, art shop and creative 'hub' in Wadhurst, East Sussex where until recently she also chaired The September Art Exhibition. She has exhibited all across the UK and Europe including twice at the Florence Biennale. Dani is the vice-president of The Society of Women Artists and has also written several books on painting for Search Press Ltd.
“As a painter I can tear the visual curtain to reveal a microscopic world within worlds with layered memory and with the inclusion of personal objects, the work almost becomes portraiture. I aspire to fuse the still-life tradition of Vanitas painting within a contemporary context, using both familiar objects and ideas.”
