Danae Squires
Epoch 2021
Diploma of Visual Arts
My art is strongly centred in the natural world and what I see daily.  I enjoy closely examining my world and paying attention to miraculous moments and scenes that surround me.
During this year I have fallen in love with printmaking.  I am so keen to explore the magical world of print again next year. 
I have paid attention to acquiring practical skills in this Diploma year.  I want to thank my teachers who have patiently mentored me through this time. 
I have loved coming to art school after a career in assisting other people and I hope to use my art to one day assist people to express their worlds.

I am fascinated by Australia’s clear light.  
 In these two paintings I was attempting to capture the white light of a summer afternoon 
 at Adaminaby, a little town in the high country.
