Happy second birthday to the show!
Today's episode marks the second year of Art & Cocktails. Listen as we bring back our very first guest - Danielle Krysa, as we talk about a dream come true - writing her children's book.
Danielle shares her routine during quarantine and how it made her produce art despite how the anxiety-inducing situation.
Danielle vulnerably shares how she uses art to heal and process difficult life situations.
"Danielle Krysa, a story-teller since she could talk, creates new narratives from old images adding paint, glitter, crystals, glass, pompoms, etc along the way. And, of course, none of her pieces are complete until they've been given long, funny, story-like titles. These tales take place on both paper for her smaller works, and panels for her larger pieces.
Danielle has shown her work in galleries all over the world (Brooklyn, London, Los Angeles, Aspen, Vancouver, Toronto, Tasmania), and in June 2019 she will be having a large solo exhibition at Mayberry Fine Art, Toronto.
Danielle lives and works in beautiful British Columbia,
Danielle also is the writer behind the contemporary art site, The Jealous Curator, and the author of Creative Block, Collage , Your Inner Critic Is A Big Jerk, and A BIG IMPORTANT ART BOOK - Now With Women."
