About Danielle Krysa
Danielle Krysa is a Canadian artist with a BFA in Visual Arts and a post-grad degree in design. Her combination of found imagery and carefully manipulated strokes of paint create an entirely new story. Coupled with the sly jokes that are their titles, Danielle’s works attempt to transform the everyday into something a little more ridiculous. Danielle is also the writer behind the contemporary art site, The Jealous Curator, and the author of Creative Block, Collage, Your Inner Critic Is A Big Jerk, and A Big Important Art Book (Now With Women). Her work is held in private collections in Canada, the United States, and Europe.
