Handmade Art

by Dani Bee


Ambient air surrounding, encompassing,
creating a certain mood, being,
pertaining to and noting sounds that
create a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere.

Drawing is like a meditation that creates a state of ambience,

a feeling that encompasses my soul while at work.

In life I like to keep as busy as a bee.

My mind is most content when making or learning about

geometry, numbers, music, philosophy, botany, and cosmology.

I enjoy studying patterns, symbols, textiles and languages.

Being a witness to different cultures and the ingenuity of people.

Travelling is the very essence of nature and beauty of the Universe.

Experiencing the journey as a destination, revealing the vastness of it all.

For 18 years my main passion has been working with

a wonderful family business called Maiwa Handprints.

Through the Maiwa School of Textiles, 

I have been able to learn many different artistic mediums, 

and co-teach workshops to apply natural dyes to textiles.


Maiwa has provided me great opportunities to travel,

to remote areas of India and work alongside master artisans;

dyers, block printers, spinners, weavers, embroiders.

I work closely with a design team to create fabrics and clothing. 

​Much of my art is inspired by these adventures and some

even began while waiting for a train or flying in a plane.


Any kind of paper makes me want to start drawing.

Often I begin with a simple shape and start branching out.

Sometimes I work free hand or more precisely with a compass and ruler.

For fine lines ~ my favourite tool is a black ink pen by Faber Castell,

but I also love the feeling and flow of a traditional dip pen and ink.

For colouring I use pencil crayons, earth pigments and watercolours.

Most recently I’ve been learning to draw on an iPad 

and been able turn my original art into a clean printable format.

Procreate has so many features which is unlocking new possibilities,

and am looking forward to exploring the digital realm more.


I made this website with Wix & Printful,

which is a print on demand and shipping service.

Printful offers many products so there is a possibility

of customizing something special just for you.


Please feel free to contact

 Let me know how you enjoy the art and quality of prints.

In the future I would also like to offer:

originals, limited edition prints, and textiles.

Thank you for viewing!
