Danielle Branchaud

Danielle Branchaud

Nova Art Studio's origin is based on a legacy passed from mother to daughter. It's owner and operator Danielle Branchaud began the business in 2013 in efforts to continue her mother's work after her retirement. Carrie Keller was the owner of Paintings to Order, and her work was well-known and her skills renowned in Southwest Florida. Despite the big shoes she had to fill, it could be said that Danielle's skills were passed down along with the business of mural work. Her talents are quickly gaining notoriety in the SWFL region, from mural painting to works on canvas. While Carrie is currently developing a reputation as an artist and muralist in Canada, Danielle is accepting a variety of projects in Naples, Fort Myers, Estero and Bonita Springs, while also exhibiting her original artwork from Fort Myers to Miami.
