It’s always the simple things in life that display a beauty that cannot be described. For Danielle Jordaan, Design Indaba’s Emerging Creative Class of 2020 candidate, meaning can be found in the seemingly meaningless. Life in the lifelessness of objects and in turn, she finds that the ordinary becomes extraordinary. Her love for plein air painting (painting from life in real-time) and memories from domestic life as a homeschooler. Jordaan invites the viewer to render moments in passing from her “marvellously mundane” life.
Live Wedding Painting by Danielle Jordaan Art is a must-have for all weddings. This is probably the coolest wedding service ever. What a stunning way to capture your wedding day into a memory that will last a lifetime. Danielle will arrive at your wedding and paint the wedding scene you prefer at your wedding. This is not just a cool service, but also quite entertaining for guests to see. Art is so beautiful and has a sentimental value to both the artist and the owner who buys the art. This can also be a great wedding gift to the couple getting married. Although Danielle is based in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, she is available to travel worldwide for live wedding paintings.
Coffee Art/Paintings are paintings made from instant coffee and water applied in the same fashion when painting with watercolours. The result is realistic paintings of monochromatic warm sienna tones. From portraits, landscapes and still lives to corporate signage and workshops, coffee painting is so versatile.
Danielle holds a Diploma in fine art at Ruth Prowse School of Art (2017) as well as a Higher Certificate in Graphic Design (2020) from Red&Yellow Creative School of Business . She is a Loerie Award finalist, Design Indaba’s Emerging Creatives Class of 2020 and made the Sanlam Portrait Award Top 250 (2021). Apart from her oil paintings, she also paints live at events/ weddings and she teaches coffee painting workshops. Danielle’s art studio is based in Twee Riviere, Eastern Cape.
