Danya is an accountant-turned-artist who graduated from The University of Melbourne, Australia and subsequently, Diploma in Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and First Class Degree Honors of Fine Arts in Loughborough University, UK. She specializes in Painting and Drawing.

She has participated in a number of exhibitions, such as Affordable Art Fair, 2011, 2013 &2014; Fresh Air Art Festival, 2013 & 2014 and “Seeing is Believing” Standard Charted Auction, 2010. She is also the Second Prize winner of ACR Painting Competition, 2011 and winner for Orchard Gateway Competition, 2013. Currently, she is a professional painter and muralist. Her clients include government sectors (such as Land Transport Authority, Singapore), Multinational-Corporations (i.e: BreadTalk and Tee Land) and individual collectors.

Urban architectures and lifestyles have largely influenced the direction of her artwork where space, speed and cityscape fantasies become the main subject matters in her paintings. She believes that art is a divine bestowment to mankind which separates us from primitive needs of animals and stoic logic of mechanical beings. To create art is to search for the key of paradise. One must genuinely believe its existence and any hard labor in the creation process is pure joy.
