CORNISH COLLEGE OF THE ARTS
Danae is in her final semester pursuing a BFA in Design. During her time at Cornish she learned how to be a better listener and speak unapologetically about what matters. Her instructors and peers bring out her best qualities: harnessing empathy, problem solving, making meaningful experiences, and harmonizing inner-space with everyday interfaces. She gets up early for environmental, packaging, and print design and stays up late making illustrations and tattoos. A true Taurus, Danae loves a lazy sunny day, museums, and a good smorgasbord.

A MANTRA OR SAYING YOU LIVE BY?
I like to think about how life is so improbable and incredible and for some reason we get to be aware of that cosmic joke. This perspective reminds me to approach life with a gentler hand.
