Lighthearted and jovial by nature, Diana’s contemporary paintings depict people in varied scenarios of indulgence. Whether it is a quiet moment alone in the woods, or a tantalizing rendezvous in the tub, Diana creates private moments in carefree or comedic ways. Her narratives often include humorous sexual tension between unlikely bedfellows, enough to elicit a chuckle from even the most stoic art lover. “I create a visual dialogue where everything is possible and magic is the queen,” says Diana. “[There is] a subtle injection of ambiguity that blurs the gap between the ordinary and the fantastic. The background of this sub-world appears to be transformed into an innocent children’s fantasy that almost looks like a dream.”

About The Artist
Elegance and sensuality is combining with spirituality in a contemplative surreal environment. The landscape has an endless yearning, a nostalgic state which, currently looks into the future, expecting a new event to occur. I strive to draw honest and intriguing lines, to investigate the beautiful, as well as the odd, and to illuminate the common in an environment of graphic symbols and layered patterns.
I create a visual dialogue where everything is possible and magic is the queen. Humans, animals, and plants are some of the themes that I use in my drawings, a subtle injection of ambiguity that blurs the gap between the ordinary and the fantastic.
The background of this sub-world appears to be transformed into an innocent children’s fantasy that almost looks like a dream.
When creating a piece, I take what is most personal and assume it is universal. I use my own experiences and emotional responses, and turns them into a narrative work that suggests to the viewer a peek into their own life. The stories I tell are about inner worlds revealed - the things that we are supposed to talk and feel, about our bodies, our families, and our life’s choices
All elements drive my creativity along with a light touch of the paintbrush, feeling of peace and sense of a place. I strive to re-create the peaceful, contemporary landscape in my art to expand upon the beautiful palette that nature provides us.
I appreciate the human form and the emotions within, so I explore acrylic mediums to convey the limitless individuality the human form embodies. I think of my drawings as portraits of a soul, not an actual person–pulling from the universal level instead of our clouded worldly view. They are more than their surface, much like us. They are my perspective and appreciation of who I am and what I know: a woman who embraces passion.
