Contemporary abstract painter. My colourful paintings and distinctive personal style express the vibrant spirit of South American culture. I explore colour and composition working mainly with various sizes of palette knifes. My paintings evoke the idea of ‘building with colour’. As the artist explains, “ I build the image with colour itself, I don’t draw anything to start with, the painting evolves in an spontaneous choose of colours followed by instinct and probably subconscious memories as if each layer would bring me closer to my inner self”.
Daniella studied Architecture in Mexico at ITESM. In 2006 she earned a master of arts in Architecture from Greenwich University. She worked as an architect for 12 years in countries such as Bolivia, UK, Switzerland and Brazil. It was when becoming a mother that she started following her passion in arts. Her architectural background is evident in her paintings.
Daniella is a member of the Herts visual arts and her artwork has been shown in exhibitions across Hertfordshire including The Big Art Fair 2018 and 2019 in Hitchin where she was awarded the Visitors award for the best in show.
