About the Artist

Danielle Festa first began exploring the dimensions of personality constructs developed by clothing at the University of Amherst Massachusetts as a Fine Arts major. In her thesis work, she started incorporating textiles in combination with her traditional oil painting techniques. Since graduating in 2007, she has been painting and exhibiting in the New England area. Recently, she has moved to a studio at the Washington Street Mills in Dover, NH after working out of Somerville, MA for nearly a decade. Experimenting with the mixed media application of fabrics and oil paints, she continues to develop her evolving theme: the perception of dress. Danielle has shown her work in over 40 exhibitions from the Boston area to New York City to Oslo, 14 of which were solo shows in non-commercial galleries. She is also the recipient of the Boston Biennial Gold Painting Award in 2009 and the Somerville Arts Council Fellowship Grant in 2013.
