About the Artist
Danielle Frederick is a New York City-based artist, who is both an accomplished painter and a skilled draftswoman, inspired by the sketches of the old masters such as JMW Turner and Hudson River School originals. A self-taught artist, she has been mentored by well-known painters from the Hudson Valley (such as Athena Billias, Vee Gutherie & Patti Ferrara). She has earned accolades for her works in graphite & watercolor.
As a serious environmentalist, who cares deeply for the preservation of nature, the Catskill Mountain region has always provided her with a broad range of subjects. Therefore, allowing her to combine her love of both art and nature. She has donated her works and portions of her sales to Catskill causes such as Scenic Hudson and was a longtime member of the Greene County Council on the Arts.
She was the recipient of the “Best in Show 2008 Artist Recognition Award” at Twilight Park in Haines Falls, NY. As is traditional with the Twilight Park Show, the following year her work appeared on the Program Cover, a collector’s item in high demand for her autograph. Her work has been featured by WMHT- PBS TV during pledge drives and published in magazines and newsletters.
Currently, she continues her ongoing message of environmental protection with a series of oils paintings known as "The Miraculous Swamp". Based upon the landscapes of the Artist's hometown of Quakertown, Pennsylvania.
