Hungarian-born Daniella Puls was born in northern Wisconsin and now lives in Minnesota. Enlisted in the army at the age of 17, later a police officer and also a volunteer firefighter, in 2014 an illness compromised her eyesight and she was forced to leave her job. Since then, art has become a means for her to channel emotions and feelings that would otherwise be difficult to control emotionally and physically. So she rediscovers the passion that has been part of her since she was a child, not only in art but also in music, to escape from despair. Her art is a reflection of both calm and chaos, elements that have always characterised her life and work.
Through an expressiveness linked to an abstract language characterised by strong geometries, she is inspired by artists such as Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso and Albers. "They taught me to always look for beauty in everything, everywhere, because no matter how hard life is, no matter how hard the struggle, somewhere there is always beauty to be admired. This is what I try to reflect in my art."
