About the Teaching Artist:

  Danah Sullivan is a mixed media artist, based in Rhode Island. She is inspired by bold line work, noisey colors, and up-cycling objects that have been lost or forgotten in order to bring new life to them. Sullivan mixes imagery with bold colors and intense patterns to maximize her composition in an effort to express complex subjects to her viewers.

She strives to create images and pieces that could survive for many years to come. For this very reason, one of her passions is tattooing, allowing her art to live on her clients and grow with them throughout their lives.
