about the artist

grama and meMy intention for girlfromthewest is to share my life with you as a visual artist.

I live in San Francisco and was born and raised in Marin County. I went to Wheaton College outside of Boston, lived in Manhattan, worked at Sothebys and assisted commercial photographers. I moved to Los Angeles to attend The Art Center College of Design for an intensive in everything technical about photography-incredible education. While I was there I met inspiring artists such as Christopher Williams and Eve Fowler who encouraged me to attend graduate school. I decided on The Royal College of Art in London. It was pretty incredible. I had no idea how special these two years would really be.

I have spent the last six years living in the Bay Area. The Headlands Center for the Arts gave me a studio for three years and I found two great galleries, Taylor De Cordoba and Weston Gallery to represent my work.

I currently am very grateful to be working/squatting in an office space for lease downtown with an some serious views of the city…I call it my studio in the sky.

    hello Danielle, my name is Marisa Fernandez and I visited Taylor de Cordoba when your solo show was on. I am about to write on your work, particularily the 2 diamond pieces, on a magazine in Mexico . The gallery already provided with the high res images. I just would like if you could tell me a bit more on those 2 paintings. Thank you!
