Aloha! I was born and raised in Brazil, but I now live in Hawaii with my husband and our beautiful kids. I am the oldest of 6 and growing up we were very exposed to different cultures specially because my parents had friends from all over the world. My dad is a retired artist/gallerist and my mom is a very busy homemaker.  I developed very early on a love for arts, traveling, languages, our beautiful blue planet and how fascinating it is that everything seams to fit in together so beautifully. Portuguese is my first language, but I also study English, Spanish and Italian. I had my first job when I was just 1 year old as a baby model in a national ad for a Brazilian oil company. Against my dad's will, at 16 I started to sell cars at a BMW dealership in Salvador, my hometown. From there, I worked for Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi, Renault, Nissan, Peugeot, Toyota and Lexus. For 12 years I was the youngest top producer for every company that I worked for, having had sold many millions of dollars in luxury cars, including armored vehicles. I became specialized in OFF-Road precision driving, I've also worked as a model for Club Med, Diet-Coke, Iguatemi Fashion Week, a few international auto shows and as an actress in the movies Deadly Honeymoon and Journey to the center of the earth II: The Mysterious Islands. Questionably I was the youngest car sales woman ever, but for sure a successful one. In 2004 I left the automobile industry and became a loan officer in California, in 2005 I opened my own mortgage company and in 2006 I became a real estate agent in the state of Hawaii. I love doing business, specially the part that we look into each others eyes and shake hands to seal a deal, it is truly exhilarating to me! For the past few years I have been dedicating most of my time into raising my babies and into my artistic carrier. I have been painting for most of my life, but did not take it seriously until my brother Daniel died, he was brutally murdered in November of 2007. He was a very talented artist, and inspired by his loss I started to paint again. I live a very healthy and active life style. There is also something about warm sandy beaches, that I can't live without, and Hawaii is like living in paradise for that matter. But the bottom line about me is that I love God and the life that He has given me, I love my family desperately, I love to work and to learn new things, go to new places, to meet new people... I believe in "doing onto others as you would like to be done onto you" and in "carpe diem"! 
Welcome to my iworld, this blog is a virtual window to my life, from my thoughts to my art and the things and people that inspire me and to also create new business relationships.  I regularly post pictures from my iPhone please look for the hash tags #danielapower and #popartbydaniela.
I hope you enjoy my space!
Much Aloha,
