When it comes to finding muses for her art, Malibu resident Daniela Schweitzer doesn’t look far. 

“When I moved to Malibu, I spent a good six years just painting the beach,” Schweitzer said. “And when my daughter began dancing, I found myself inspired to paint abstractions of the movements of the body. My paintings often come from the ordinary stories I see in photographs. When I take a photograph I see a vision I want to paint.”
