Welcome to 'For Art Sake', a website for all lovers of art.

Please let me introduce myself.... My name is Danae Thyssen. I am an Adelaide based visual artist,  blogger, freelance writer and social commentator. I am currently undertaking her Masters by Coursework in Photography at the University of South Australia. This is part of a nested program for which she has completed the Graduate Diploma component in 2013 and will continue with the remainder of the Masters Program over 2015.  

Some notable achievements: In 2013 I was the proud recipient of the Linda Lou Murphy Scholarship Award, in addition to successfully undertaking mentorship programs with Deborah Pauuwe, Greg Donovan, Gee Greenslade and David Hobbs. I was also a finalist for the 2015 Emma Hack Art Prize. I am  currently one of the featured Australian artist of the ArtExpo 2015 Milano who is  participating in this international event featuring 105 artists from 26 countries! Another achievement for 2015…I am officially one of the photographic artist included in the digital art display for the Exposure Award Show premiering at the Louvre on the 13th July in the Dreamers Collection.

Aside from my independent fine arts practice, I am available for custom commissioned works. For Art Sake is based on the belief that the customers' needs are of the utmost importance and is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals.
