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 Chongqing, Vancouver, Manila, Oakland, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Seattle and Gila, New Mexico. Today I live in the high desert city of Reno, Nevada, with my son and our dog.


I make art for children, young adults and adults who keep one foot in the infinite, where anything can happen. Art can be a powerful antidote to the limits and standardization imposed by the Muggle 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…
