At different stages of my life, painting

beckoned and invited me to venture into its

magical world without boundaries.

My source of inspiration is silence... the

Universe. The Universe speaks to me by

means of silence.

Throughout my work, occurs an encounter

with feminine energy that embraces me,

nourishes me and guides me.

Colours flow and emanate freely from within.

To paint is a process of meditation, a space in

time that is infinitely free where I surrender,

play and build my work.

Today I open myself to be able to share the

experiences that flow from the depths of

my being. We are channels of the Universe... children, women, men, groups and multitudes that are all interconnected, experiencing this dream, this dance with its diverse dimensions.

Color and light invite us to feel them and

discover their illuminating power, their

healing power.


All my work is an invitation to let ourselves

flow, to awaken our conscience and move

beyond the structure of the mind, to make

contact with our feelings and travel in the

direction of our divine essence. An invitation

to transcend from this illusory adventure into

one more conscious of the fulfillment and

infinity of the spirit.

The techniques that I have been using are

mostly spontaneous, where my principal guide is what I feel, what arises and orients me during the creative process. My curiosity has also opened paths for me through experimenting with different procedures.

I have experienced by painting on various

sizes and surfaces, such as papyrus, different

kinds of textiles, wood or acrylic panels,

seeking fragments of the mystery that hides

behind each work.

My creations are made using different

mediums, such as acrylic paint, pastel, oils,

and with them I use different instruments to

apply the material, which may be brushes,

spatulas, pieces of cloth or sponges, even my

hands, which for a long time were my only

working tools.


I work with acrylics to prepare the surface and then enjoy the attributes of oil paint to venture into the world that reveals itself before my eyes. I develop an artifice with the successive layers that I need to give my limitless scenarios their depth and consistency. The line of the pencil mark on these surfaces liberates my strokes and permits me to unite the universes of my work in their diversity of dimensions.

Daphne Anastassiou Mustakis is a

visionary, transformational artist,

author, and instructor of personal

evolution and enlightenment. Her

work speaks to the intuition and

the intellect, inviting people of all

backgrounds to release limiting

beliefs and to trust in our creative

potential as a key to enjoying a

happy, fulfilling life.


Born in Viña del Mar, Chile, into a Greek

family with strong bonds to the artistic world,

Daphne’s first artistic expressions go back

to her childhood working at her mother’s

atelier with enamels over metal and different

techniques with acids. Since childhood, art

has been an inspiration for Daphne’s own

development of her inner light.

As an adult, she experimented with

ceramics before turning to painting in 1991.

It has been her main passion since 2006. In

2009, she launched her first solo exhibition,

entitled “Agapi ” (Greek for “divine love”),

in Santiago, Chile. From 2014 on, her work

in sculpture added another dimension to

her growing mastery of artistic expression.

Daphne’s art has been exhibited in

London, Paris, New York, Madrid, Buenos

Aires, Shanghai and Athens, and is held in

private collections around the world. Today,

Daphne is represented by Galerie Colette

Dubois in Paris, following solo exhibitions

in 2011, 2013 and 2016.

Daphne’s dynamic, fluid compositions

evoke the free, joyous expression of our

true essence as humans: LOVE.



Daphne’s higher education began at colleges

in England and Greece, and finished at

Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile

where she earned a degree in psychology.

For decades, she worked professionally in

the business world in the development of

human potential for respected international

organizations and in her own private

practice. Her most requested workshops

are creativity, leadership, self-empowerment

and emotional wellness.

In her innovative book Somos Amor

(We Are Love), published in 2000, and in

workshops based upon concepts from the

book, she shares insights and expertise

gathered during 40 years of professional

experience and self-exploration.

Her expanding talents in visual and written

expression have been enriched by a deep

understanding of the complexities of human

nature. Today, she presents a unique synthesis

of catalysts for personal enlightenment. Her

goal is to help us all to expand and evolve

our inner awareness beyond fears, doubts

and prejudices.

As she says, “Colors flow and emanate

freely from within. We are channels of the
