Danielle Henderson

Artist . Lover . Mother in Cairns Australia

Danielle is trained in theatre, performance and media arts. She is a passionate entertainer, writer/ storyteller and occasional singer living in Cairns, Far North Queensland with her husband and 2 daughters.
Alongside employment in more mainstream administrative arenas, her diverse creative professional experiences include years working in film and television production (predominantly advertising), experiences planning and assisting to produce events and festivals, facilitating workshops in theatre practise and credits as a professional theatre actor. Since becoming a mother her attention has turned to visual art forms, specifically scherenschnitte, or silhouette paper cutting. She has been designing and creating paper cut works for several years. Her work is exceptionally detailed and has a pure uncomplicated visual appeal which lends itself poetically to shadow play. In 2013 Danielle wrote and performed I Live Here - a shadow puppet theatre experience for children.
Seeking more colourful and less solitary creative engagements she has more recently facilitated a community arts project for children and families. Her latest work is pushing her interest in puppet making into 3 dimensions.
