Daphne is originally from Cape Town, South Africa. She studied Fabric Design in London, England and completed Expressive Art Therapy studies in Toronto, Canada.
Daphne’s training in both Fabric Design and Expressive Art Therapy informs her as she pursues her art. She uses the design elements associated with fabric coupled with the free-flowing association of expressive art to guide her as she creates in her studio. Both the immediacy and texture form the basis of her work. The ever-changing and layering of the paint results in a finished product that has depth that is palpable. Daphne strives to create art that is not only unique but also true to who she is by incorporating the vast landscapes and colour that she associates with Africa.
