Artist Statement:
Part One: "'I want to show the start of a tender moment;
a movement to reset what settled in a binary field of dust;
known as "the past".
Along the layers of a vanishing point; Along the horizon, we do fly forward.' 
My art takes shape through the paintings and drawings along the surface breaking through rhythmic time
on a canvas,
on a sculpture,
in a public space.

I think now, more than ever, is a time to shine a light of encouragement and to ignite inspiration into our present day."


Danielle Catté is an interdisciplinary artist from Glenside, Pennsylvania. She studied fine art, music, dance, and writing. Today her work comprises of painting, drawing, sculpture, and functional art. She studied at Tyler School of Art, Moore College of Art, and received her undergraduate degree from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. She holds a BFA in Multimedia. 
Danielle traveled with sculptor Barry Parker to Budapest, Hungary where she was a visiting artist at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. Her travels did not stop there.....
She moved to Los Angeles, California in 2003, met up with a lively bunch of musicians, and began singing in studio and on the stage. She also met master printer and artist Richard Duardo who became not just a mentor but a friend. This is where she learned printmaking and expanded her perspective on painting styles. She occasionally exhibited her painting. In 2012, Danielle was noticed by Gallery Go owner/curator - Elaine Trebek Kares, along with other artists, and her work travelled to FAME - a group art show in Miami, Florida for Art Basel Miami. The show was curated by New York City artist Chris Riggs.
In 2012, Danielle began working with artists Robb Boldt and Avesha Michael at Bitter Root Pottery - this is where her world of clay began to thrive. 
In 2015 Danielle moved back to the east coast. From 2015 to 2017 she worked out of The Clay Studio in Old City, Philadelphia, PA - working alongside an array of artists including Jennifer Martin and Ahrong Kim. As of current, Danielle accepted a teaching position at CCA (Cheltenham Center for the Arts) in Cheltenham, PA.
