...through the eyes of your soul...
Born in Ontario, Canada and raised between Italy and Ontario, Dania followed her childhood passion and studied art at Humber College, Ontario before spending a period juggling 'regular day-jobs' with art as part-time work and a full-time hobby. After giving birth to her two boys, Dania changed path and dedicated her time to being a full-time mother and artist.
The central characters within my work are 'my girls'. I feel that a girl's eyes can tell infinite stories and I look to capture this within my work. While there is a vulnerability to many of the girls in my work, this is often countered by a deeper, inner-strength within them. I can see a mirror-image of myself in many of my paintings and what reaches the canvas can represent an interpretation of my own emotions. I also draw upon the wonders of nature and marine-life to add flavour to my work, sometimes poignant, sometimes in a playful fashion.
My art, my painting, is very therapeutic and in no way can I imagine my journey as an artist ever coming to an end. Rather, I see it continuously evolving through the passage of time.
