Hello, I'm Daniela Glassop.

My illustrations and paintings tend to be based on the natural environment, flora, fauna and food while being inspired by architecture, vintage items, the fashion industry and the decorative arts. My work tends to include exaggerated colour, pattern and  texture; are combined with realism and defined shadows to create painted images that are also decorative. 

I have always loved to paint, draw and make things that are pretty and well designed. I have graphic design and fine art training,  and have worked as a graphic designer/illustrator for design studios, advertising agencies and also taught Visual Communication and all aspects of graphic design and illustration, at The University of Newcastle for a number of years. 

Fabric is another constant in my life as I grew up surrounded by colourful fabrics, while my Mother worked in the fashion industry so I feel right at home designing patterns for fabric and surface pattern design.

I still love colour and beautiful things, but now I enjoy creating colourful illustrations, surface pattern design and wall art for collaborations and art licensing. I enjoy having to work within limitations and collaborating with others.

My wall art will usually include flowers, beautiful objects, food and the occasional bird, butterfly, cat or dog. I also do commissions for new wall art that has special personal meaning which can include paintings of  bridal bouquets or a still life that could include objects that are sentimental to you.

I also have a range of gallery quality giclee prints, linen tea towels that have been designed by me and other products carrying my illustration work for sale. 

I have original paintings, prints and products that carry my illustrations and designs available for sale through my site, and I welcome licensing opportunities and commissions.

I live in Newcastle, Australia with my husband, 2 sons, 2 cats and the ring tailed possums, birds and lizards that visit my garden. When I am not painting, drawing or designing, I also like to cook, garden and create wall art from fabric.

“The social media and design assistance I received from Daniela was spot on!
I am pleased with the logo design and the way she was able to connect and style my social media platforms to give uniformity to the overall look of my business.
Daniela also set-up my blog and assisted me to understand some of the social media concepts that had previously eluded me. She has a professional approach and is very easy to work with.”
— Jennifer O’Brien,
When you hire Daniela, you have the pleasure of working with an artist. Artists have a way of teaching us to see what is not immediately visible. They see with different eyes. That is their function and their gift to us. Daniela was able to interpret what I was telling her about my business and translated it into something beautiful that is representative of what I wanted. She has many, many years of experience and is truly passionate about what she does.
