Danielle is a Brisbane based designer, illustrator and calligrapher working on creative projects worldwide.
I live with my beardy husband Alex and our two ratbag kitties Boris and Buttercup. I cannot live without coffee and red wine, 90’s Hip Hop, Marimekko and my Fiat 500 called Valentina. I am not a fan of symmetry or perfection. When I’m not making a mess in my studio you can usually find me pottering in my succulent and cactus garden listening to true crime podcasts.
I have drawn and painted my whole life. When I was a little girl everyone else was painting green caterpillars, mine were purple. I always knew I as destined for a creative career but have dabbled in various disciplines to arrive here. I studied set and costume design for theatre, film and tv at NIDA in Sydney. After working in theatre and film design, I designed commercial Christmas decorations including santa sets for clients such as Westfield and The QVB.
When I was engaged, I just couldn’t find anything that was ‘us’. And being on a serious budget, I did it myself. I realised I could do it for other couples seeking something a little more personal for their stationery. So my mission began. To create fine art stationery that is a true reflection of a couple's personality and sets the tone for one of the the most special days in one's life.
I am inspired by handmade paper, vintage lettering, old-school pen and ink, painterly textures and watercolour illustration. I get super excited when someone comes to me with a wild idea - feel free to challenge me! Whether you want a suite with skulls or peonies, I can do it. I believe everyone should have the stationery that they dream of.
