Daniela Miszkinis is a visual artist and practising art therapist and counsellor. She is focusing on painting in oils from life, in particular portraiture, still life arrangements, interiors and painting from figure.
Always working directly from life, without reference to photographic material, Daniela creates paintings based on the premise that the sitter’s psyche can be accessed through the observation of their body. Her work centres on the psychological realms of the human mind and gives expression to her fascination with the interior, deep and hidden realms of the life force.
Painting the body of the model allows the psychological themes to emerge through the work instinctively; to portray the richness of human experience, the beauty of beginnings, the sorrow and heroism of illness, the lyrical inevitability of death.
