I'm Danielle Folkerts

A Visual Artist, Art Educator, Arts Coordinator, avid traveller, and lover of the ocean.

When I'm not in the studio painting or buried under a pile of wool working on various fibre projects, you can find me developing and instructing creative workshops. I’m known for my expressive paintings, ocean-inspired textiles, upbeat and comprehensive workshops, and vibrant large-scale murals for Lululemon and more! My love of travelling and nature are echoed in my art practice, and I’m an enthusiastic life long learner of the arts. I have a passion for marketing, art education, and creative programming, and I love providing others with valuable opportunities and inspiring experiences to explore their own creative potential. I'm the face behind The Travelling Artisan - a resource, studio, and brand focusing on art, travel and arts education.

I serve the dreamers, doers, and entrepreneurs by delivering quality, educational, and modern, creative workshops . I’ve found that most people are curious about exploring their artistic side, but struggle in knowing how and where to start! Does this sound like you?

I create custom arts programming, instruct unique courses, and provide valuable resources along the way. My goal is to provide you with a comfortable space to create, and an opportunity to build a strong artistic foundation, while developing your creative tool kit - surrounded by a like-minded community. I work with all ages and skill levels, and teach a variety of mediums including: watercolour, acrylic, mixed media, printmaking, mural painting, weaving and more! 

It's time to focus on your creative journey! Let’s get started!
