In 2008, Dakaya enrolled at the Nola Hatterman Art Academy out of curiosity and the need to express herself creatively. She graduated in 2012 with a major in decorative arts. She exhibited her work at art exhibitions such as; Art Boost 2013, Moengo Festival of Visual Arts 2015, Spontanelus 2016, The National Art Fair of Suriname 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018.
Colors and shapes, especially from nature, inspire Dakaya. A harmonious play between these two, within tightly defined areas, is predominant in her work. She uses strongly defined lines and creates figurative, abstract and semi-abstract works. To step out of her comfort zone, she also has worked in a different style this year. In this work the composition is more of a co-creator in which the colors meet and overlap without limits.
