What & Why

Color, concept and the love a good narrative, Danyelle Lakin’s work is the bi-product of a wonderfully eclectic background.  Her mother, atypical and ultimately tragic, features largely in her work, evident in the sad smiles, the derisive gestures and the stoic acceptance that things sometimes don’t work out the way you had hoped but we can still “make do and mend”.

Primarily a figurative artist, Danyelle spent her childhood in Northern Ireland, went to Art College in the South of England and after gallivanting around the US over the last 7 years, now calls Raleigh, North Carolina her home.


Currently working socially distanced style from home with my french bulldog Mavis and Boston Terrier Nacho.  New Raleigh studio details coming soon. My lineup of art fairs for the remainder of 2020 is still unconfirmed due to mass closures and cancellations.  Hopefully updates coming end of Aug.
