My name is Danielle Hart, mostly known as a Wisconsin Volleyball player. While I currently live in the midwest, the ocean is always with me.
Inspiration is easy having grown up minutes from the Virginia Beach oceanfront, but my favorite go-to? Aerial ocean photography.
Each piece is crafted using a mix of epoxy resin, acrylics, and a quick blast of high heat reaching temps as high as a 1000 degrees.
Epoxy resin is a unique medium that I’ve fallen for as it carries many characteristics of the ocean — it is somewhat predictable but rather uncontrollable. Epoxy resin is a thermosetting polymer, also commonly used in the making of surfboards and boats. It can have a mind of its own, resembling the water's movements oh-so-well while leaving a stunning glossy shine after the final torch. It is important to me that no piece feels rushed-- that the time is allowed to let my creative juices flow & get lost in my work. I know that's when I have the most fun & have my best sessions. Each is made with a whole lotta love and attention.
It never gets old watching each piece come to life in its own unique way. Learn how to care for resin artwork here.
