About the Artist
Danielle Ivester is an abstract painter and mixed media artist based in Austin, Texas. Her work focuses on the relationship between color and abstracted forms inspired by the natural landscape around her. Originally from Massachusetts, she graduated with a BFA in studio art and moved to Austin shortly after having been drawn to the quiet, expansive landscape of central Texas.
Working in both painting and mixed media mediums, danielle ivesters abstract landscapes present the viewer with two separate, yet related bodies of work. Her paintings precise depicting rigid lines that cut through a soft, thoughtful palette. While her sculpted landscapes feature soft, folded and sewn canvases washed in muted acrylic tones. Both ongoing series focus on the relationship between color and abstracted forms, inspired by the natural landscape around her. In creating these works, Ivester’s intention is to provide the viewer with a calming visual and remind the viewer of a landscape fondly remembered.
