the travelling artisan

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 work with people like you. 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! Good news, the desire and decision to own your creative potential is the first step. Now, it's time to take action!

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!
