Danielle Mailer is fast becoming one of Northwest Connecticut's most renowned artists. Danielle was born into an artistic family in Manhattan’s West Village. Her father, Norman, was an accomplished writer; while her mother, Adele Morales, was one of the most heralded Peruvian painters of her time. Danielle nourished her creativity starting at a young age and received her BA from Bowdoin College before continuing her studies at both the New York Studio School and the School of Visual Arts.
In the last decade she has completed countless sculptures and paintings for private clients. In addition, Danielle has created three site specific outdoor public
artworks in Northwest Connecticut. In addition to her large-scale outdoor sculptures, Danielle has also created large indoor artworks, most notably the massive indoor wall pieces in the new wing of the Boston Children’s Hospital.
Danielle has received grants from Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism, The National Endowment for the Arts, and The Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation. Danielle has shown in galleries and museums throughout North America. Danielle was honored with a retrospective at the Mattatuck Museum with over 40 of her works on display. In addition, Danielle is also Litchfield Magazine's two-time recipient of the "50 Most Influential People" in Litchfield county. Mailer’s artwork is represented by Ezair Gallery in Manhattan, the Berta Walker in Provincetown Mass., and The White Gallery in Lakeville Connecticut.
Danielle creates out of her light-filled studio in Goshen, CT. When Danielle is not creating in her studio, she is teaching and inspiring the students at Salisbury High School.
