Leda Daniel's main motivation as an artist is to connect the viewer to the pure beauty of an otherworldly place and to produce a sense of joy and peace that takes us away from our everyday worries. Her career spans over 30 years, from portraits to realistic landscapes, and in the last few years to abstract art. During this time she migrated to New Zealand with her Kiwi husband, where they raised 3 children in a farm in the outskirts of Auckland.
"I struggled for a long time to find a purpose in my art and for long periods I wouldn't even touch a brush. When I discovered the world of abstract art, my life changed forever."
For the last few years contemporary flow art and resin has captivated her attention. She loves experimenting with this medium, using elements from nature such as shells from her walks in the beach and crystals. She also recycles wasted resin into new pieces of art. She has participated of numerous group and solo exhibitions and won some awards for her abstract representations, such as her latest merit award at the Hibiscus and Bays Art Awards in 2020.
Her artwork is held in collections around the world, from New York to Israel, UK, Australia, Argentina and her new home New Zealand. She enjoys doing commissioned work because it gives her the opportunity to create something special and unique for her clients.
