DANIELLE GREENWOOD

I grew up in El Paso, Texas which is the border town to Mexico but now reside in Bristol, England. My childhood was immersed in Catholic and Mexican culture which has influenced my art. People ask 'why skulls and what is your fascination with death?'.

The simple answer is that I have sadly experienced a lot loss through deaths in my life. Each death has taught me something new about life and myself. I could spend my life mourning the death of my father, brother, aunt, best friends and grandparents but I choose to celebrate their life through an ornate skull that symbolises all that they were. I believe in the Mexican celebration 'Dia De Los Muertos' and all that it stands for. There is so much beauty in humans and that does not need to be lost because the body is no longer with us. I have taken many commissions from people who have lost loved ones and created a unique skull to capture the beauty of the person whom has passed.

I like to experiment with many types of mediums and most of my art is created from up-cycled resources. I give old, bland frames a new lease of life then turn them into boxes with an antique gilded style.  I hand cast all the skulls with plaster and hand sculpt all the clay for the large skull and heart pieces. All pieces of art are unique and original. I regularly visit my family back in Texas and make trips to Mexico to find inspiration and trinkets to add to my creations. I have also rediscovered my love for sewing and have delved into the world of haberdashery by creating cushions, bags and wall banners with fabric direct from Texas and Mexico or Mexican inspired styles in the UK. I am happy to take commissions for my boxes and can reproduce many designs though they will always be unique to some degree. Please contact me if you are interested in any of the pieces. All items can be posted.
