Daphne grew up in Montreal, Quebec and has been living in Oakville with her family for the past 20 years.
She has worked as a medical social worker and presently teaches in a Halton elementary school. She has taken many art courses and workshops over the years and has developed her own distinctive modern art style.
Many of her paintings are her unique representations of landscapes in Western Canada, the Laurentians and Southern Ontario.
While her work of acrylic on canvas dominates her collection, she has also experimented with fabric and paint on canvas, compositions in metal, and creations made from recycled and reclaimed materials.
Her inspirations often come from photographs of places she has visited.
She uses many different tools in the creation of her art including rollers, scrapers, knives and a variety of implements to create texture, anything but a paintbrush!
