Being from a long lineage of visual artists, art curators, archaeologists and fervent explorers Daniele's second career was in anthropology. Her third career was in linguistic.

What makes her art so unique is the interplay of watercolour’s fluidity and the spontaneity of the gestural marks of the paper ground she apposes before painting.

Her original visual stories are remarkably distinctive and unique. Her figurative expressionist style is full of unexpected contrasts. Her flamboyant and unique uses of watercolours and unorthodox range of mix media is wild and fits the mood of each visual story she creates and her drawing skills has won her several art awards in the past. 

Distinguished visual artist Daniele  she has held several solo shows of her various body of works in drawing, sculpture and now painting.  She has also participated in numerous group exhibitions here in Australia but also  throughout the world. She has won prizes, awards, competitions and got several grants and mentions over the years.

Daniele’s best known sculpture is a huge ephemeral fire sculpture set on fire at Wynnum foreshore in 2014 where over 10,000 persons saw the kinetic interplay of her animal shapes dancing in the fire.The following video is about the artwork titled HURT for I received an award last year.
