Danielle Leedie Gray
is an artist and illustrator, and a descendant of the Bidjara and Wakka Wakka people of south west and east Queensland, Australia.
Danielle creates bold, contemporary pieces that make people feel joy and connection, and her artworks are a unique expression.
Danielle’s work is guided by a deep sense of empathy towards her cultural heritage and family history, and invites unity and healing through the unique combination of culture and contemporary vision.
More personally, important symbols for Danielle are the people gathering (the circle with dots surrounding) and the travelling sign (three circles with three lines between them) because they reflect unity and moving forward.
Danielle wants to invite her work into the homes of non-indigenous people, and promote understanding of the symbols, stories and meaning in Aboriginal culture so together we create a united future for all Australians.
Danielle creates custom artworks for individuals and companies, and her work has appeared on homewares, linens and event promotions.
