Kimberly Joy Danielson
Kimberly Joy Danielson has a BFA from the Ontario College of Art in drawing and painting. She holds a Bachelor of Science in chemistry from McMaster University, a medical degree from McMaster University, with a specialization in psychiatry and psychoanalysis.
Danielson’s current body of work emerges as a culmination and synthesis of a lifelong practice of painting, psychoanalysis, and exposure to the colours, traditions, and handicrafts of Västerbotten Sweden and Telemark Norway, her cultural heritage. There is a strong tradition of beautifully woven textiles, carved wooden objects sometimes vibrantly painted, as well as birch root and birch bark baskets and knapsacks.
