She received an Honorable Mention in the "If I Can Dream" exhibit held at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art in 2013. She was selected by the Collierville Tennessee Historical Society in 2014 to conduct a solo exhibit at the Harrell Theatre. She has been artistically vocal in issues surrounding the Mexican community, participating in shows celebrating Latino artists such as "Mi Sur/My South" at Crosstown Arts (Memphis, Tennessee) in 2014, “Estamos Aqui” at the Nashville Public Library (Nashville, Tennessee) in 2015, and “Here to Stay” at the L Ross Gallery (Memphis, Tennessee) in 2017. Danielle curated and exhibited in the two-year running art show “An Art(form) of Worship” at Crosstown Arts in 2016 and 2017. In its second year the show was highlighted in an excellent revue in the Memphis Flyer newspaper. In 2018 Danielle was chosen as one of seven local artists to participate in Urban Art Commission’s District Mural Training Program, which provides mural training and professional development from MuralArts Philadelphia and culminates in each artist creating their own $30,000 mural project in each of the seven Council districts. Danielle’s work is inspired by the beauty found in the diversity of human beings. Often combining the human figure with organic, architectural, costume, and floral elements to convey allegorical meaning focused on biblical themes. She continues to make art that focuses on being a visual language for her generation seeking to speak to a modern day about unchanging truths.
