Danielle Mettling exhibited her work as an Artist of the Week on July 17, 2020.
My name is Danielle Mettling, I’ve been in the Valley for five years. I am more a photographer, than painter, but I took up painting for a “first Friday” event in 2018. I had never painted before that, and was extremely surprised to see that they were flying off the wall. This past month, I was asked again to participate in “first Friday,” so after two years I quickly picked up a brush and began painting. I’ve found so much joy in creating these pieces that I’ve decided to stick with it and share my work with everyone in the Valley. I have an eclectic painting style that exhibits a lot of fun colors, splatters, and drips and some very detailed realistic pieces.
