Daniela Giardina is an Italian born multidisciplinary artist, coming from the world of theater and puppetry. She works for an international humanitarian organization in Boston. Since 2019, she started experimenting with visual art, using alternative photographic processes (cyanotypes and anthotypes) and being more and more interested in observational drawings and depicting nature. She is pursuing a certificate on Natural Science Illustration from the Yale Peabody Museum in Connecticut. With her art she wants to highlight the importance of biodiversity, and to create more awareness about the natural world, pollinators and other species at risks of extinction due to the impact climate change and exploitative human misuse of the earth. At the open studios, she will show selected illustrations mostly in color pencils, and some wearable textiles with her illustrations.
