Denise Daffara

Born and raised in New Zealand, Denise recalls a childhood filled with sets of crayons, pencils and paints. Colouring in was a favourite activity feeding her fast growing affinity for colour and creativity in her life.

Emigrating to Queensland, Australia in 1988 Denise’s passion and exploration through colour continued to evolve. By the nineties she found herself inexplicably drawn to express through the medium of painting which she describes as “a form of absolute home coming”.

Denise’s early works expressed an essence of femininity and frivolity in a modern figurative style. Her first solo exhibitions were a sell out success followed by multiple commissions.

Over the ensuing years Denise has sold hundreds of paintings and created multiple privately commissioned works. These pieces are represented in various Australian and international collections. She is constantly evolving her style and subject as it directly relates to life, seasons and energy flow.

Denise has personally taught and attended at numerous international workshops including Bali, San Francisco and her homeland of New Zealand. She has featured as a guest teacher on numerous global Art platforms and is also the creator and host of many of her own personal Art workshops and courses, both online and in person.

The feminine form has returned in her latest work along with every day familiar objects such as her much loved chairs and cups of tea. Other reoccurring motifs include Australian and New Zealand flora, fauna and abstract botanicals and landscapes.

Denise’s art expresses the sacred union between beauty and healing for the heart – for both the artist and the viewer. Her art practice is an intuitive, light and colour fuelled exploration of life’s journey.
