Danielle O’Connor Akiyama has enjoyed major international success as an artist for over 30 years. A Canadian based in Toronto, she has spent much of her life travelling, and has exhibited her vibrant and exquisite masterpieces to great acclaim all over the world.
Danielle was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1957. From an early age she enjoyed the freedom and serenity of living in a small community of just 22 homes, nurtured by the warmth of those around her, and guided by her family’s strength and faith. They provided a wonderfully artistic environment; her mother and two sisters all paint – she describes her mother as a painter with a courageous paintbrush and a fierce belief – and her creative father was affectionately known as ‘the mad inventor’. Along with her four brothers and sisters, she took great delight in hearing the many stories that their parents told them, revelling in unfettered opportunities to let her imagination run wild.
Having studied sumi-e, Japanese brush painting, Danielle O’Connor Akiyama paints abstract floral paintings in a stunning dynamic style, utilising vibrant colour palettes and thought provoking symbolism and imagery.
