Originally from the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, Danielle C. Wyckoff currently lives and works in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She is an artist and an educator, teaching at Kendall College of Art and Design. Her work investigates how loving or losing love allows us to empathize with each other, and her work often refers to water. Since moving to Grand Rapids, she has become obsessed with Lake Michigan and finds her way to its shores as often as possible.
