“As I continue to paint and learn, I expand my seeing, finding nuance in the shadows and rainbows in the light.”

I’m Denise Dambrackas, a realist painter living and working in Denver, Colorado. My work features colorful, often mixed media paintings, the passion in my life as an artist, designer and creator.

I’m currently showing works from my series “Future Feminine” which visually tells the stories of the next generation of women ignoring gender stereotypes to embrace who they are. I’m also regularly engaged in portraiture commissions, atelier study and painting for fun.

Future Feminine

A series of figurative oil paintings that feature girls who will, one day, rule the world.


Alla prima and other quick work, done in preparation for larger paintings or just for fun.
