A Room with a Muse - Mixed Media by Danielle Mailer


The subtlety sprinkled throughout Mailer’s work, like the mortar in an elaborate mosaic, are her strongest influences: her Peruvian heritage, the colorful echo’s of her mother's large abstract expressionistic paintings, and the words of her father, the late Norman Mailer, who always said, “paint what you know”.

Mailer has shown in galleries and museums throughout North America. She was honored with a retrospective at the Mattutuck Museum with over 40 works on display. She was also part of a traveling retrospective of Provincetown artists titled the Tides of Provincetown at the New Britain Museum of American Art. 

Thanks to numerous donors and a recent state regional grant, she recently completed her most ambitious work to date, a 200 ft. mural on the exterior back of the Staples building in downtown Torrington, CT.

Mailer is the Chairman of the Art Department position at the Salisbury Boys School in Salisbury, CT. She is the daughter of Peruvian Painter Adele Morales and author, Norman Mailer. She lives in Goshen, CT with her husband, jazz trombonist, Peter McEachern, and their three grown children who visit often.
