Dascha was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia where she was surrounded by the beauty of Prague’s art and architecture, a 1000 year history ranging from early Gothic to the contemporary International Style. Because of the Communist Regime, Dascha could not fly as in her dreams. But starting from 1969, she had the chance to leave to London then Germany & the rest of Europe. In 1970, Dasca immigrated to USA.
What a long journey Dascha! In your search for art, you met a lot of people & experiences & this is a rich life. We can see that in your creations. In the above slide show, you can see collection of her digital photo collage arts. You feel that parts of her life is apparent in each work. We are not talking about her photo which is apparent in some creations. We are meaning different parts of the work giving you variable feelings & even timing. She is painting memories & stories.
By the way, Dascha expresses herself in acrylic paint, water color on paper and canvas. Her latest passion is creation of Digital Photo Collages. Also she studied interior design; multi talented as usual. We feel a light of hope present in her creations. She believe in a very precious thing ” art is distillation of creative energy and life ( Living is Art and Art is Life).”

about my Photo collages,
I would like to add little bit about my process and background. I am originally painter and approach the photo collage very similar like painting, just the tools here are my photographs (I have over 27000 of my photos in the file). What attracts me now to photos is the fascination with light and creation of different levels of reality (I like surrealism very much). My approach is playfullness and then of course applying my sense of esthetics, composition,, image, feelings. It is the process which fascinates me.
