Er i DaphneDaphne Cowen #2 astudio tecstilau yn Coleg Celf Lerpwl, nid oedd brodwaith yn rhan o’r cwrs. Er hynny,  yn y maes hwn mae Daphne wedi arbenigo yn y blynyddoedd diwethaf.
Hi oedd yn gyfrifol am tecstilau yng Ngholeg Caer cyn ei swydd dysgy amser-llawn ddiwethaf  yn Moreton Hall, Croesoswallt.

Ers hynny mae wedi mwynhau arbrofi gyda sgiliau tecstiliau amrywiol, datblygu syniadau drwy ddefnyddio brodwaith llaw a pheiriant, yn aml yn gweithio ar baentiadau sidan a defnyddio technegau cwiltio a collage. Mae llawer o’i gwaith diweddar yn darlunio tirwedd newidiol Cymru, lle y mae hi wrth ei bodd wedi byw yma am dros ddeugain mlynedd.

Mae ei waith wedi ei arddangos yn Amgueddfa Grosvenor, Caer; Y Royal International Pavillion, Llangollen, Castell, Penrhyn, Bangor, Erddig Hall, Wrecsam, The Silk Top Hat Gallery Ludlow, Betws Y Coed a mannau eDaphne Cowen #4raill.
Mae ei gwaith wedi cael ei ddewis ar gyfer yr arddangosfa ‘Artist Cymreig y Flwyddyn’  yn Neuadd Dewi Sant Caerdydd,   ac mae hi wedi cael gwobrau yn Arddangosfa Agored Gogledd Cymru, Theatr Clwyd. Agored Llangollen; Oriel Plas Glyn-y-Weddw-yn Llanbedrog  ac Oriel Ynys Mon, Llangefni.

Mae Daphne yn aelod o’r  ‘North Wales Society of Fine Art’ a’r ‘Clwydian Art Society’.
