She is founder of the intersectional feminist Gynocratic Art Gallery. Danielle’s work is deeply inspired by networks of care among and across communities of women – “women’s work” – she is an artist inspired by all things textile, and thrives on thrifting and knitting.
Danielle’s research embraces craftivism, DIY, women & gender studies broadly, in addition to other social justice issues. Her doctoral dissertation investigates the negative effects of femaffect on textiles in art. In 2016, she coined the term Femaffect – the word specifically addressing an affect which is feminized, either intentionally or unintentionally. In her research, she studies the effects of femaffect on women, and other members of LGBTG2+ communities, as it relates to their use of textiles in visual art.
