“Daggi is one of the most talented young award winning artists around & her paintings capture the soul of her subjects. She pays very close attention to detail & I am ALWAYS complimented on the artwork I have in my home that Daggi has done.

Her passion shows in her work! She comes HIGHLY recommended”

Quotes by art writers/critics:
"Daggi Wallace captures the soul of her subjects and the essence of the moment in her masterful pastels."- Informed Collector  June 2010
"Wallace creates in luscious painted pastels, forming sensuously realistic individual portraits."By Roberta Carasso, ArtScene Magazine, California
"Daggi Wallace creates thought provoking works in pastel. The images I've viewed -- which deal with issues facing today's teens -- pull viewers in emotionally... reminding us of the raw strength and confusion of youth.These are socially relevant works of art." Art Critic Brian Sherwin

Other Artists Say:

"...Your technical skill is obvious.  The art is something not everyone can achieve (composition, balance, color and emotional appeal).  You are among the best I have seen Nationally and I hope you continue your prolific work...."

Martin Prakope

"...Your talent, your work, your heart, your soul is a combination very few painters have no idea how to reach, but for the few of us that have the gift to recognize it, it becomes a JOYOUS REMARKABLE event ... I could only wish to be at your level, you inspire me and many more. I can't wait to see what your artistic ability is going to be 10 years from now. I have such a respect for you... I'm curious 100 years from now which museum will display your work!"
John Irizarry


"Fine Art is that in which the hand, the head and the heart of man go together"John Ruskin
Born and raised in Berlin, Germany (b. 1962), and currently living near Los Angeles, CA, Daggi is a self-taught award winning painter specializing in contemporary figurative realism and portraiture. She has reached the level of Eminent Pastelist of the International Association of Pastel Societies and Master Pastelist of the Pastel Society of America as well as Signature Membership in several pastel societies.
Working primarily in pastel and charcoal she pushes the more traditional boundaries of the medium by incorporating other materials and mediums into her work and presentation. Inspired by her dual cultural life she mixes realism with abstraction and personal narrative with social and political undercurrents.
Her work has been shown at the National Arts Club and the Salmagundi Club in NYC, the Butler Institute of American Art, OH, The Zhou B. Art Center in Chicago, The Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art and is in several permanent corporate collections as well as private collections, including The Bennett Collection, throughout the U.S. and Europe. Galleries that have shown her work include RJD Gallery in NY and Abend Gallery in CO. She has won numerous awards in national and international exhibitions. Her work has been published in many magazines and books, including Poets and Artists Magazine, American Art Collector, Southwest Art, Professional Artist Magazine, International Artist Magazine, The Pastel Journal and Pratique Des Arts in France.
In 2021 images of her work were selected for 'The Peregrine Collection' time capsule to be archived on The Moon via Astrobotic's Peregrine Mission One.
