Always pushing her limits, Diana took on the challenge of hard-edge paintings. Multiple large works were completed, all pushing the boundaries on clean line work and geometric shapes. These works also were her modern take on traditional landscapes.
Through vibrant colours and only the use of palette knives, a series of abstract landscapes were born and quickly embraced!
Using her unique formula to alter acrylic paints and again without the use of any brushes, but rather just her breath and straws, Diana Joleen would literally blow life into each of her flowers. The abstract take on nature’s beauty mesmerized many and this limited series also sold out.
A lot of trial and error was to be had before Diana Joleen’s formula was perfected. Precise modification of her acrylic paints was necessary to achieve the complex yet delicate balance between all colours used in one canvas. Capturing harmony and light, many were drawn into each original piece, selling out the series quickly!
Using only her uniquely modified acrylics, Diana Joleen continued to push the “brushless“ boundaries and by only using straws and her breath created captivating works that were the first to sell out completely.
Combining her two previous sold out series, Fluid & Straws, “Invisible” was born. Each original work of art, while appearing abstract, had hidden images. Allowing the viewer time for the painting to wrap around them until the hidden image became clear. (The painting featured has a hidden dove.)
Using her current style of clean lines and vibrant colours, abstract paintings were created. This was the only series where paintbrushes were used. Sold Out.
In the wake of the unknown, a lot of people stocked up on their art supplies leaving some of us out in the cold. Thankfully, that adversity pushed Diana into digital arts, which up until feeling like she had no choice, avoided that avenue completely out of fear of failing. After some practice and tweaking her personal style, her pop style portraits were born. This led to a UK Professional Dance Company to commission her to create new and even more challenging works!
