Her pastel paintings have been juried into many exhibitions including the IAPS and PSA and the awards have included Best of Show, Awards of Excellence and Purchase Awards in regional and national juried exhibitions.
In 2010 Wallace started a non-profit project called “Moni’s Kids”, painting portraits of children in need and using the proceeds to deliver aid to the children portrayed. The first series of Haitian children was exhibited in Miami in November 2010. To learn more about Moni’s Kids, please visit Daggi’s website.
“Painting portraits to me is all about exploring our shared humanity, the connection we have to each other and our common Source. Each face tells a story and communicating this to others is my goal. As these portraits are given new homes my hope is to bring the world outside our own little circles a little closer.” ¨- Daggi
Daggi was recently elected as a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America.
