Danielle Vochims was born in Paris in a bicultural family: her mother was German and her father Russian. She lived in Morocco and Iran. Today, she divides her time between France and Germany. She brings up the situation that led her father’s family to leave the USSR, still shrouded in mystery, to explain her artistic vision. The doubts surrounding her family history led her to conduct some research which soon turned into experimentations with materials and colours, in pieces where light is omnipresent. She enjoys working with glass, as well as painting with acrylics on canvas or aluminium. Transparency dances with light in a colourful approach, constantly renewed.
Danielle Vochims discovered PINTON through two friends staying in the area. The artist and the manufactory developed an immediate bond leading to an enthusiastic collaboration. At PINTON, Danielle Vochims discovered a know-how whose visual power she ignored, and she wondered at the new glow given by to her paintings by their transposition to rugs and tapestries.
