Having grown up in Virginia and lived in Oregon, Danelle Hughes Norman found her home in southwest Colorado in 1999. With a passion for art and a love for teaching, she earned her BFA in Art Education from Colorado Mesa University in 2008.
Although she has taken a step back from full time artmaking, Danelle enjoys throwing daily vessels as much as creating concept art pieces and tree faces. You can see many of her faces on the trees in the Enchanted Forest at Telluride Ski Resort. Danelle's love for the outdoors and art becomes contagious in her work with youth. Serving as Program Manager for Voyager Youth Program since 2016, she has applied her creativity to inspiring youth to lead healthy lives.
