Dani Godreau is a feminist artist who is best known for her explorations of women’s traditional crafts and domestic duties through paper cutting. Her work stretches the definition of drawing by creating line and form through incisions and shadow while paying homage to the global tradition of paper cutting as an art form and valorizing devalued women’s labor. She graduated from Florida State University with a BFA in Painting and BA in Art History in 2012 going on to receive her MFA in Drawing/Painting and from Arizona State University in 2016. In 2015 and 2016 Godreau was awarded funding from the Nathan Cumming’s Travel Grant and Shangyuan Artist Residency to facilitate her research in Beijing and Foshan regarding Chinese folk art and traditional paper cutting. She currently resides in Phoenix AZ while teaching at ASU and within the Tempe School District's Visiting Studio Artist Program.
