‘Cabin Fever’ refers to a seasonal anxiety and madness caused by prolonged confinement in a cramped or remote place, traditionally during the winter; perhaps this was Daniel’s state of mind at times of absolute sub zero temperatures in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, the city in which she was born.

Daniel’s paintings are figurative, narrative and hallucinatory, at times embodying that of a children’s storybook and in fact, children’s illustrated books and cartoons are some of Daniel’s influences.
