About Daniela Duca

My passion for art started at an early age, while experiencing the changes in colors and style with the fall of the Soviet Union. I began painting and drawing more intensely around 2005 when I moved to the US for university. Although I studied biochemistry and economics, I spent my summers at the university’s arts centre.

When I quit my corporate job in London, I rediscovered immense pleasure and relaxation in painting, an activity that soon developed into a passionate calling. I continue to learn and experiment with acrylics, paste and charcoal. Being a fan of hot and sunny weather, which is rare in London, I use mostly bright colors to transform a blank canvas into abstract images inspired by everyday experiences.
