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 and Seattle. Today I live in the high desert city of Reno with my son.


I make art specifically for children because most kids still have one foot in the infinite, where anything can happen. Art can be 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…
