Danielle Richard

Artist Statement

"My work, mainly of women and children, tends to depict an inner beauty for inner life…My art has been seen as within “realism”, expressing a poetic language that is optimistic and timeless…I do think that offering images of serenity, is a balm, if a humble one, in a world of struggles and anxiety."
