My name is Daphne Moncloa , I was born 1988 in Munich, but I grew up in Spain. 

I started drawing at a very young age and I remember when I was 5 years old, my grandmother had a business meeting. I was sitting with them at the same table, drawing meanwhile they had their conversation. When they were finished the man saw my work and he fell in love with it, because he said the drawing was so vivid. 

He gave me 50 Marks for it, a lot of money for a 5 year old girl.

But while growing up somehow I stopped painting until last year when my grandmother passed away. 

She was always so proud of me and always encouraged me to continue painting and reminded me of that story when I was 5 years old.

I think it's her who inspires me,  from wherever she  is.


Painting calms my souls and I paint from the soul.
