Danielle - self portrait (2022)Heart n Soul

Hi, my name is Danielle and I'm an artist.

I’ve been drawing some pictures of characters. I’ve been painting on my canvases and I’ve been writing some lyrics of my songs. I’ve been drawing lots of people and I’ve been drawing families. I’ve been drawing some food and some bags and I’ve been doing a lot.

People You Know (2022)Heart n Soul

I use pencils, felt tip pens and I also use colouring pencils and I colour pictures and also I do painting as well.

It makes me feel excited.

I normally do it around the table and at home.

Four Friends (2022)Heart n Soul

I like to draw people because it’s a good picture. I normally draw lots of people that I know like my friends, Judy, William, Aysen, Priscilla and Alicia.

I like to be more creative and have a good time of drawing more pictures, I do like working with people. I like to be kind and be friendly so every time I call them and say 'How are you?' and get friends with people. And I buy present for my friend.

This is one person singing ‘My band’s not for you girls’. It’s a song that I made.
