Hello, I’m Daria. Welcome to my website!
Here are some things that I love:
singing harmony, big open space, hippie embroidery, mountain lakes, poems, puns, plants and animals.
I’ve lived in China, Canada, the Philippines, California, Minnesota, New York and Washington. Today I live in a brick house in Nevada with a dog, a lizard, some backyard hens, fish, plants, veggies, flowers, a lot of artwork and my husband and son: home!
I make art specifically for children because most kids still have one foot in the infinite, where anything can happen. Art is a powerful antidote to the limits and standardization imposed by the grownup world. I hope that each of my creations conveys a little mystery and a lot of possibility. Take a look and let me know what you see…
