Danielle James is a Durham N.C. based neon bender, artist and metalsmith whose works have been exhibited internationally.  Currently a 3rd-year neon apprentice under neon artist and sculpture

Nate Sheaffer at Glas neon in Raleigh N.C.

She chooses to highlight in her work, the relationship humans have with each other via social media and marketing outlets. Using certain materials and design elements her current work references a nostalgic American past while confronting the toxic relationship that is the myth of the American dream.
