Hi, I am Daphne Confar. I am an artist who lives here in Milton. I’ve lived here with my family for 11 years. I have a wonderful wife and two fabulous boys and we love it here.

I’ve been a professional artist for 20 years now and have shown my work from coast to coast and also in Europe. I received my Masters of Fine Arts from Boston University in 2000, and my BFA at the Art Institute of So Cal in 1995.

I have a studio in Hyde park where I paint. Mostly I like painting people, although sometimes I’ll paint a still life or a landscape.

My work is about capturing that something about people that makes them feel familiar to us; that something which tugs on our heart or reminds us of a feeling we’ve had about someone. I really appreciate people’s stories. I enjoy imagining what peoples lives are like, what makes them tick, what makes them nervous, and if they have regrets. I like to capture the look on a face when someone is having a happy memory, or the body language of someone who is not too sure of themself. I know those feelings and I think usually my viewers recognize them as well. My work is in many private and public collections.

I really appreciate people’s stories. I enjoy imagining what peoples lives are like, what makes them tick, what makes them nervous, and if they have regrets.

I currently have a show in Provincetown at the William Scott Gallery, 439 Commercial Street, running from July 10-22.

    Welcome to the Milton Scene Ms. Confar. Wow!!! I am surrounded by so much TALENT. Everybody has a story and your paintings capture them well. What a treat to the people who have seen your art show in Provincetown. Lucinda surely captures a smile in your painting and I too love to hear and share stories. Looking forward to the day you have a show closer to home. Possibly at the Milton Public Library? Well done and congrats. A gift is better when shared. Thanks for sharing your rich talent with us. I am particularly drawn to the eyes, the window of the soul and each of your paintings featured the eyes tell a different story, Bravo!!! keep up the GREAT work!!!
