Danielle Ridolfi is a graphic designer and illustrator from St. Louis. She graduated in 2023 from the MFA program in Illustration and Visual Culture from the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University where she was a Sam Fox Ambassadors Fellow. Her work includes children’s picture books, editorial illustration, zines, and publication design. She uses image-making processes that are contingent upon contact with the natural and material world and that bear traces of objects and places, particularly collage. Given her background as a clinical psychologist specializing in children and young adults, Danielle is particularly drawn to using theories of learning and development to guide image-making practices. Her work has been featured in Honest History magazine, Uppercase magazine, and AIGA St. Louis. She currently teaches courses in digital design and screenprinting in the Sam Fox School and children’s studies in Arts & Sciences at Washington University.
