Hi, I'm Danica.

Danica Wixom Thurber

When I was twelve years old, my dad passed away of a sudden heart attack. I struggled to understand and express my grief for many years afterward, and art was sometimes my only outlet for grief. 

I graduated from Washington State University with a thesis on "Cultural Expressions of Grief Through Art", which was published in an online journal that same year. Since then, I have spoken at multiple conferences nationwide and led grief art workshops throughout the Northwest. I am now a practicing artist and certified Therapeutic Art Life Coach. 

Life is messy. It's full of loss, grief, healing,

and (for me) learning to express it all through art.


I created Project Grief to help others who are wading their way through grief and loss.
