Part Starseed, part mystic, Danielle Noel first began her career as a visual arts teacher and graphic designer. In 2007, she founded her own freelance company which evolved into 'Starseed Designs' in 2012 - a platform for her indie oracles and soul-fueled art.
Most of Danielle's creations are thematically based in ancient lore and mysticism, through the intersection of the Divine Feminine. Danielle's spiritual work began at a young age, as her own upbringing, combined with her sensitivity to energy and spirit, awakened her to seek and explore new avenues of spiritual studies and philosophies. She began reading the Tarot in 1995, after finding a second-hand copy of 'The Aquarian Tarot' at a local market. After that, her devotion to learning grew, branching off into avenues of Gnosticism, Hermeticism, and archeoastronomy.
After working in a hospice for many years and then later as an emergency shelter support worker at a local women's transition house, Danielle knew that being of service was calling her to create, as seeking avenues of spirit and wellness rang true to her heart. At the time, she was also in the midst of studying art therapy and art education, along with Quantum Healing and various forms of other Energy Medicine practices. Somewhere along the line, these interests finally merged into one creative direction.
Danielle's passion for giving back and creating art has always been her main driving force, and through her desire to weave spirit with artistry, she finally designed her first oracle in 2012, which then became 'The Starchild Tarot', a galactic-infused Tarot devoted to Starseeds, seekers, and sacred symbology. It was the deck she had always been seeking, and a personal wellness tool, in the beginning. Since the Starchild first launched, Danielle has found her own creative niche and continues to build helpful outlets for other readers and seekers.
Danielle has since freelanced on various illustration jobs and recently had her first book published, entitled, 'The Book of Tarot - a Guide for Modern Mystics', through Penguin Random House and Andrews Mcmeel. She is also the artist for Rebecca Campbell's 'Work your Light Oracle', Published through Hay House UK, as well as 'The Book of Unicorns', written by Joules Taylor, published through Clarkson Potter books, and Penguin Random House.
Danielle's work has also been published elsewhere internationally by Ebury, Wydawnicto Illuminatio, and has been seen in publications such as, Nylon, Bust, Elle Decor, The Numinous, Juxtapoz, The Hoodwitch, Holistic Fashionista, The Bohemian Collective, and NY Yoga + Life magazine, and found in Anthropolgie and Urban Outfitters.
Danielle is currently working on a new series of oracles, paintings, and a future graphic novel. She resides on Gabriola island off the west coast of British Columbia with her partner, Sterling, their two dogs, Loki and Maela, and a ginger cat named Orion.
