 A city girl, a paint brush & her love for art in many forms...

Welcome, my name is Daniela and I've named this site Bare the Art. Here I share my personal work, stories, opinions and art that inspires me and hopefully you too. So bare yourself and embrace the art. Whether you love it, like it or just don't understand it, art is all around us. Art is in us. The art of painting, the art of sculpture, the art of writing, cooking, photography, the art of marketing, selling, presenting, the art of thinking, the art of science, medicine it goes on and on. I'll even go as far as saying we are all walking art forms, unique in our own ways! 

Words by Henri Matisse "Creativity takes Courage." I believe he is saying to let go of all the negative self talk. Open your mind to all possibilities. Don't constrain yourself. It is only then when you will feel the creative energy inside you. This is why I love art. It transcends different dimensions, connects people of all cultures and gives value to our lives. 

As a freelance illustrator and photographer, I love capturing moments and playing with different mediums that give praise to nature, wildlife, culture, history, humanity and the simple day to day life. From the simple to the colourful, I tend to define my style as rustic elegant with a splash of boho personality. By day I am a marketing specialist always looking to grow and develop my professional skills, keeping in mind that business can be used as a force for good. 

If you're interested in purchasing my work or want to collaborate on a custom piece, please contact me by email at or give me a ring 416 435 6658.

I'm based out of the colourful multi-cultural city of Toronto, Canada but that doesn't stop me from working with anyone anywhere. As long as we can understand each other! :)
