Danielle Schmitt is a visual artist. When she studied abroad in Japan for a semester in 2005, she learned the art of Japanese Brush Painting from basic forms to landscapes. While she incorporated the basic forms with students ages 8-adult, she continued to develop her own style and practice. She is inspired by the use of subtle lines, creating different values with ink, and experimenting with different papers and wet mediums.
