Dani Salvo is a ceramic artist based on the gorgeous Bellarine Peninsular in Victoria, Australia. Her work is as busy and as varied as her life. An artist, teacher, wifey and mum she is behind Be My Keeper Maker's Studio and The Keepers Gallery.
Dani has always worked in the arts, as a practising artist, teacher and as an arts project worker where she has developed projects to connect young people, cultural communities and older individuals to art and art making. Working with such groups has inspired her love of teaching and fostering fearless creativity and exploration with clay. The studio is a space where individuality thrives and engages participants at all levels of their journey, sculptural or functional.
Dani has a broad skill base and generally her sculptural works incorporate her love of painting and drawing. Predominately a figurative sculptor, she is currently addicted to the exploration of ceramic abstract form, simplifying her surface treatment and becoming less illustrative...... talking less!
Dani is a member of the Geelong Sculptors Group and the Barwon Heads Arts Council, she has taken part in a number of exhibitions to date and also takes private commissions, her ambition is to extend her personal arts practice over the coming years.
Dani has a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts- Ceramics and a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education.
