Daniella Hulme Info

Daniella Hulme is a New Zealand based full-time artist since 1998. In 1965 she was born in Elsloo, a province of Limburg, Holland. When she was a kid, she used to paint and use bright vibrant colours.Growing up though, Daniella’s parents were unsupportive of her wanting to be an artist, due to having traditional views on jobs.

In 1981 Daniella emigrated to New Zealand and started nursing in 1987.This is where she met her husband Jamie.It was through him that she started to realise her dream of becoming an artist. He bought her an easel, paints and a canvas and enrolled her into art classes.

Her tutor was a realistic artist, but she knew she had her own style of drawing. She did learn some techniques however, like brush strokes and how to use oil paint. She loved using oil paint better than acrylic because she liked the texture and the smell, and the depth of the colour difference she could create.
