In 2021, Dariá joined forces with her husband Richard, an engineer and musician, to broaden their impact through programs, workshops, and partnerships. Their shared mission is to inspire, guide, and sustain the future through creativity. This collaboration gave rise to Hammond Studio & Co.
Within Hammond Studio & Co., Dariá’s art focuses on healing and evoking nostalgia, infusing each piece with profound meaning that serves as a voice for her artwork. She allows her faith to shape and guide her creative process, aiming to redefine and transcend conventional notions of divine creativity.
