As an artist, Daniela has works with a variety of media, but she loves clay and specializes in ceramics. In her words:
“My work leans towards the reflective and introspective. I strive to capture the complexities of the human condition and its vulnerability, the private worlds in which we can begin to rediscover a sense of dignity and reverence for life. I look for the balance between freedom and control, space and form, light and obscurity, opposed concepts that, once achieved, invigorates and dignifies”
