This Atelier is a center for intuitive art, where Daniella creates product applications for personal development through art. In this location she offers intuitive painting courses and retreats for both local and international participants. Daniella created a Blueprint program, which offers participants at every level a guide to the process of emotional ecstasy of colors, light and dark, lines, movement and form.
Daniella is also a gifted fine artist, working both two and three dimensional in a sculptural regard with mediums where she can express with light, dark, colors, line and forms.
