Danielle O’Connor Akiyama

Painting with an uninhibited vigour and freedom, Danielle creates luminous images that vibrate with life, energy and colour. Whether she is depicting a riotous party of flowers or inviting us to enter a radiant new world of abstraction, her vibrant palette, loose formal structure and unique vocabulary of signs and symbols make her work both instantly recognisable and utterly irresistible.

Danielle began a ‘second life’ on the west coast of Ireland a few years ago, moving there from Canada. Danielle is mining a rich seam of inspiration in the unearthly beauty of the hills, the wildness of the Atlantic coast and the ever shifting light parade.

In order to gain a greater understanding and technical skill she studied sumi-e, Japanese brush painting, and was awarded the prestigious Master’s Seal for outstanding work. The red Japanese chop mark which appears in all her work signifies her honorary Sumi-E title, ‘Source of Joy’.

Her distinctive fusion of eastern and western artistry has led to her works being highly prized by art collectors from both sides of the Pacific, and she has been the subject of a major fine art retrospective book entitled ‘Illumination’ which further enhanced her status in the UK.

“a gift is to receive … a gift is to give … a gift lays within each of us to share, to lend, to be. Painting is my gift … the sharing of it – may my joy be your gift.”
