Artist Yelitza Diaz creates sculptural modernist wall pieces where she incorporates ceramic figures. Born in Venezuela, her life has been wrapped in the arts since childhood. She finished her degree at the Arturo Michelena School of Fine Arts, where she grew passionate about the human form. Yelitza devoted her time to her artistic practice and shared her skill as an art teacher in public institutions. She founded a gallery with her husband in her hometown but moved to the United States due to bureaucratic and economic matters. Since then, she has explored human existentialism and the political and social developments of her native country. "My artwork represents the search for peace and emotional balance that we all desire in life," shares Yelitza. She retains a workspace in Venezuela but mainly works at her studio in South Carolina, where she has complete freedom to develop her art. Yelitza’s work has been awarded and recognized by national and international juries. She has also proudly designed the town seal for her native municipality in Venezuela.

Love the piece. Works perfectly in our home among the 65 other original paintings and drawings on our walls. Many positive comments from friends and family visiting over thanksgiving.- B Rohde
This is a powerful piece and means so much to both of us as I purchased it for wedding anniversary, and we have both been through so much as a couple. Thank you for creating such a beautiful piece that makes me feel so incredibly good every time I see it!- W Strelow
Thanks for a great, thought provoking piece. I see it everyday on my way out of the house. You can start a new day just hanging on, or climbing into it instead!- M Lynch
