My process of painting begins with an urge. An urge to paint something that comes from within me. I work in my sketchbooks until I get a composition that I am happy with, and then I start to paint. Having been trained academically, I have the ability to paint in a realistic or representational way, but I combine these skills with decorative patterns, leaks of paint, scratches and other expressive marks, adding to and removing from the canvas depending on how I feel.Daria Zapala
