Danila Rumold is an painter who participated in a year long artist-residency in Motherhood (June 2016 - June 2017). Following a process of chance and intention, she explored her daily life through natural materials- opening up the work to the realm of multi-media and the exploration of the intersectionality of her personal stories.

In previous works, Rumold committed to the specificity of painting within an abstract language. Utilizing Nature and trees as a subject, Rumold maintained formal concerns of line, texture, color and light as a means of exploring the material of paint itself. 

Danila Rumold received her MFA in Painting from the University of Washington in 2001. Rumold taught drawing, design and color, mural painting and printmaking at Seattle University for six years, where in the summer of 2007 she was resident director and instructor for a drawing/painting program in Siena, Italy. In March, 2009 she received an artist grant to participate in the Vermont Studios residency program and in August 2010 she was awarded an artist grant from the Ora Lerman Charitable Trust Foundation. Mrs. Rumold has exhibited her work in Chicago, Seattle, Oregon, California and New Mexico. She has work in both private and public collections and is currently represented by the Gallery I|M|A, in Seattle Washington, SFMOMA Artist Gallery in San Francisco and Exhibit 208 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
