Darya Farral

Darya Farral was born in the Crimea, Ukraine. It’s a small but scenic peninsula with beautiful nature and rocky mountains surrounded by the Black sea.

Darya started painting very early, and it has always been her passion. After a workshop on oil painting she took in 2008, she realized that she loved the medium, and started taking online classes and workshops on oil painting. The nature around was always there to inspire her.

When Darya moved to US in 2015, the passion to paint got more time and inspiration — both by local landscapes and by memories of always being able to relax by the sea.

“I think that God gave us two gifts: first one is all the beauty of His creations; the second one is being able to appreciate it. My paintings are a tribute to the beauty of the world around, to the beauty that changes and nevertheless always stays there.”
