Artists Statement I am passionate about conveying a sense of vitality and mood to these works, using a rich palette of pastels or oils to bring out the best in the subject at hand.
My style is classical, but I try and add a tenderness borne from life experiences, which I hope evokes emotion in the eyes of the viewer. - Dani
Biography Danielle Robertson was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. With an early love of all things creative, she was always sketching and painting during her childhood. At 16 she attended Box Hill College and studied Art & Design for two years. She then went on to do an Associated Diploma in Finished Art, which led her to work for various design houses for the next twelve years. During this time she continued to do life classes and other creative pursuits in her spare time. Danielle is married with three children who have filled the last twelve years, but she has always had a burning desire to go back to her roots and paint again. Inspiration came when she saw a portrait demonstration in pastels by accomplished artist Agata Lelek. From that point on, Danielle was inspired to focus on her artistic passions, and threw all of her efforts and focus into developing her own individual artistic style. Danielle has now broadened her work from portrait, to still life, to life drawing with both oils and pastels. Danielle’s style is classical, with a tenderness borne from life experiences.

I am 15 years old. I love singing, dancing and acting therefore I did CPCA (Children's Performing Company of Australia). I did a whole range of dancing in the past at Dynamite Dance Centre such as, ballet, hip-hop, jazz, contemporary, tap and acro circus. Early this year I did a musical, Seussical the Musical, and toured in Melbourne and Adelaide. April this year, I took up a modelling course with Tanya Powell and learnt the basics of how to do makeup, hair, pose for photoshoots, walk the catwalk, and also how to look after ourselves. I did a modelling competition, Instagram selfie competition, a few months back and came first out of Australia and was given a free year training to become a model. And recently I passed an interview to compete in Top Model Worldwide and now one of the finalists. The competition is going to be held in London, Hilton Hotels from the 31st of March - 5th of April.

Roll up, roll up! Introducing Australian pop singer Mel Jade.
Singing has been Mel Jade's number one love from a very early age. “I actually can't remember a time when I wasn't singing.” she says, “When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up at first I answered Belle from 'Beauty and the Beast', but when I realised that becoming a fictional cartoon character wasn't really a viable career option, I set my sights on singing instead.”
Mel Jade wrote her first song in the bathtub at the age of three called 'I never thought a seahorse could drown'. “It was a very tragic song” she laughs, but Mel Jade's love of singing and songwriting didn't stop there.
Mel Jade stepped onto the scene with her track 'Aliens' which was remixed and released by the Pretty Boys of Saint Tropez in Europe. The remix hit the charts after top DJ Armin Van Buuren picked it up and played it on his radio segment in Holland.
Mel Jade then embarked on an independent solo project and released her debut album 'Alive', a poetic yet catchy underground pop record. “It was both scary and exciting to start this project completely on my own. But the songs are all about taking chances, pushing boundaries and doing exactly what you want to do, so that's what I did!”
Excitingly, the home made video Mel Jade created for her song 'We Could Make a Movie' hit over a million views on YouTube in a matter of weeks. Fashion TV aired behind the scenes footage from her 'Not That Serious' music video and she toured the UK promoting 'Alive'.
Mel Jade describes her style as pop infused with a million other influences as she listens to everything from rock to blues to classical to dirrty electro.
“I just mash everything I like together” Mel Jade says, and this cocktail of influences which she has fused and injected with her own poetic lyrics that speak of risk, fantasy, feeling alive and retro romance means the singer has emerged with her own brand of pop.
Though she's dripping with candy, Mel Jade also has something very raw and real about her. She is both recklessly fun and thoughtfully poetic, girl-next-door and glamorous, naughty and sweet, untouchable and approachable (she always replies to her followers on Facebook and Twitter).
“I bought a huge bag of glitter off eBay, so I'm pretty much prepared for anything now.”
So there you are, she's armed herself with songs and sparkles, and wants YOU on her team.
