A native of northwestern Connecticut, Daryl earned a BFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University, Boston. She also attended Rhode Island School of Design, earning a 2 year Certificate in Advertising Design and Production.
Daryl attributes her interest in all things Art, from the example set by her parents. Her mother was a popular soloist as well as a local choir director. Her father was a talented engineer, machinist, gunsmith and outdoorsman, who could make just about anything in his machine shop - and did. Both parents liked to draw, and gifted their daughter her first pad and pencils.
An Illustrator and Graphic Designer most of her life, she is greatful to have dicovered the realist movement, and has worked predominantly in fine art and oil since 2017. She draws her inspiration from family, hobbies, and the beauty of her countryside home, now in northeastern Connecticut.
"I almost always have a personal connection to my subject. I render in a realistic style, but try to maintain a fresh painterly expression. I work mostly from life, and with few exceptions, usually come near completion of a painting within a few very long sessions."
Daryl has exhibited her paintings in juried shows with The Salmagundi Art Club, New York City; Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society; Lyme Art Association, Old Lyme, Connecticut, and in the 108th Allied Artists of America Exhibition, as well as the AAA Associate 2022 Online Exhibition; The 16th Annual International Guild of Realism Exhibition, currently at the prestigious McBride Gallery in Annapolis, Maryland. She also has work in private collections.
