This year’s Christmas display at Longwood Gardens features works from Dannielle Vincent, a Downingtown artist who creates art out of paper and books, writes Lisa Dukart for Main Line Today.
For this year’s “Trees Reimagined” themed set, Vincent worked for months crafting the intricate design in the Music Room.
The Music Room is anchored by an 18-foot Fraser fir, positioned on a stand made of books. The entire room is focused around a library theme, including a tree made from children’s literature and Vincent’s works.
Vincent, the owner of PreMade ReMade, creates sayings and graphics that include hearts, paw prints, and intricate butterflies. Earlier this year, her designs caught the eye of the Longwood Gardens team.
When Jim Sutton, associate director of display design, reached out to Vincent, she was shocked.
“My jaw hit the floor,” she said.
“It was very overwhelming,” she said. “I never in a million years thought that my folding books would bring me to that level.”
