Danielle Mahood


Danielle Mahood is a multidisciplinary artist known for working in a wide variety of styles and mediums. Attention to detail and an eye for colour are characteristics that can be appreciated in her pieces. Although Danielle is mainly self-taught to draw and paint, she received her Applied Communication Arts and Graphic Design diplomas with honours from NSCC Annapolis Valley. She owned and operated her own tattoo business for 8 years before deciding to focus solely on fine art and graphic design.

Danielle’s paintings are created mainly in acrylic due to the fast drying time and versatility. She enjoys creating bright and eye catching works, drawing inspiration from the world around her. Danielle is able to achieve depth and realism using high quality coloured pencils to create “paintings”. She also specializes in realistic graphite portraits of people and pets from photographs which serve as valuable keepsakes. Paper cutting and fluid painting are her most recent creative outlets. Her two self-published colouring books each consist of 50 original hand drawn and inked illustrations inspired by life in the Maritimes. www.daniellemahood.com
