Danielle Hartzler will show some of her art work and expand on the techniques and processes involved in developing her pieces from start to finish.  In her personal process of considering career options and strategizing about the future, she has developed tools and ways of approaching the idea of finding work as an artist that have transformed her thinking.  The role of and opportunities for artists looks vastly different in today's digital world which brings about it's own set of both challenges and possibilities.  She'll share what she's learned so far in navigating in the digital age, the subject of mental health, and how each person's process and journey is unique and personal.

Danielle grew up in South Carolina and moved to Missouri to pursue a bachelor of Fine Arts in Oil Painting and Printmaking.  Since graduating, she has taken up various jobs while working on personal projects, and has landed at Transformation Gallery & Tattoo as the Creative Director and Curator, working among other accomplished artists.  Her job involves curating the fine art gallery, managing social media, interacting with customers, and general office management of the tattoo studio.  Other advantages of the position include shared studio space and a platform for displaying her own work in a gallery and online setting.  

Danielle’s drawings and paintings have been shown at art shows and craft markets around town, and she was commissioned to do the artwork for two Live Dead Journal publications, a daily missions devotional and journal.  Aside from commissioned work, her focus has been to continue creating bodies of work in oils and pen and ink to foster opportunities for careers in the arts, while maintaining personal artistic discovery and development.
