My Favorite.jpg

My name is Dakota Daetwiler. I was born and raised in California, but now reside on the East Coast with my family, 10 chickens and 10 ducks. I am a completely self taught artist.

I have been a professional Oil Painter now for over a decade, and have skills in many other artistic categories such as: illustrations (children's books and more), stained glass sculptures, clay sculptures, portrait painting, jewelry making and more. My passion to this day remains with oil painting on canvas, but from time to time I love to branch out into these other categories.

If you are interested in having something custom made for your collection, feel free to email me anytime.

I owned two beautiful galleries in California between 2013 and 2020 where I displayed and sold my work. With the start of Covid, I chose to close my studio and work from home. Now I do shows around the country and sell my work online.

In 2021 I was diagnosed with a pretty severe auto immune disease called Ankylosing Spondilitis which is attacking my spine and my brain. I am determined to remain optimistic and keep painting and creating as long as I possibly can. Any and all sales are so appreciated and help me with my high medication and specialist costs.

Thank you for being here and taking the time to read this.

Please follow me on social media for updates, too. I post on there most frequently if new work is available. Just search for "Paintings by Dakota Daetwiler" on Facebook, IG, TikTok or Youtube.

Thank you for helping me make the world a bit more magical, one painting at a time.
