We met Danielle, like many people we meet, at the gym. She is fun, outgoing, and an artist who decided to go out on her own and focus on her business just like us! Finding others who take risks for what they love is such a cool experience. Danielle is a designer and letter-press guru. Knowing nothing about letterpress and wanting to find out more we headed out to her studio and watched her work her giant machine while she gave us the run-down on how it runs and why she does what she does.
This machine is giant, and heavy. Danielle learned how to use it in college from a favorite professor who insisted all her students learn the art form. Danielle couldn’t be more thankful considering she fell in love and now uses it weekly for her business.
When she made the decision to purchase her own machine it was delivered to her front lawn while she was away. She says she wasn’t worried about it being stolen though because who would be able to cart it away?
Her favorite project? Wedding invitations. She says they give her the opportunity to be really creative and she loves making pretty things.
On this particular day we watched Danielle make letterhead and business cards, but she does it all and truly loves her craft.
It was so much fun watching an artist at work! Thanks Danielle for teaching us something new and letting us have a small glimpse into this art.
