Painter Creates Portraits That Show the Soul

Darja, also known as lights_of_my_soul on Instagram, is an artist who works with various artistic techniques. She loves painting and drawing portraits, making little figurines from polymer clay and she is into embroidery, as well. In her work, she paints portraits of beautiful unusual souls.

“I wanted to capture my inner life in paintings. That’s the result,” Darja shared with Bored Panda. “All people on paintings are real. They left a huge impression on me. Most of them I know in person and every one of them is extraordinary, unusual and so talented soul with their own story. Self-portraits represent different periods of life and emotions – love, fear, raising up, depression, etc.”
