Daniëlla Hulme is a self-taught, full-time artist - she has been exhibiting since 1998 throughout Aotearoa, the Pacific, and beyond. Instantly striking and vibrant - she is known for her large, defined and stylized oil paintings of Pacific Island women, which are inspired by a combination of her own Dutch heritage and her husband’s Samoan culture and the Samoan heritage of her children. Her work has been recognised and celebrated by corporate and diplomatic groups, as well as being published extensively in Aotearoa, and winning awards internationally. Over the years the work she has created both celebrate and explore themes of Pacific culture, biculturalism and the idyllic settings of the Pacific - making her work so visually identifiable, along with a strong narrative.
