“Devastato” Acrylic, 36″ x 24″


I am an accomplished artist proficient in my ability to create stimulating figurative works of art. At a young age, I was fascinated with mankind’s interactions with one another.



“Giovanni” Mixed Media, 12″ x 12″


Having a preference for visual communication, “people watching” had afforded me the opportunity to seriously study gestures, mannerisms, and emotions.


No Fear

“No Fear” Acrylic, 20″ x 20″


Using what I observe helps to set the stage for each new painting. As I paint, these forms take on another dimension. I feel their pain and delight and all their emotions.



“Ooommm” Acrylic, 24″ x 18″


There is a give and take of empathy between the canvas and myself. My figures take on a life of their own through color, expression and posture. They are each telling the viewer a story – their story.



“Retreat” Acrylic, 18″ x 24″


Texture is a strong presence in most of my work. Love of texture developed as a result of visits to my family’s homeland in Italy. I was fascinated with the facade of rare landmarks throughout the country. Italy’s love of scarred and graffitied natural surfaces made an impression on me. The natural rough stone quality is included in my art.


Turn the Other Cheek

“Turn the Other Cheek” Mixed Media, 16″ x 12″


This tactile quality helps bring my paintings to life. Most recently, the use of a palette knife has found it’s way into my work. The knife, while adding texture, loosens the form, creating a more dynamic painting.


Two of a Kind

“Two of a Kind” Acrylic, 40″ x 30″


Each painting is put in motion with undertones of arbitrary colors layered on the canvas. If I have a particular posture in mind, contrasting colors will be applied to the background, working those hues into the figure.


Waiting Game

“Waiting Game” Acrylic, 36″ x 24″


On the other hand, there is a good deal of satisfaction for me when I begin a painting with no preconceived figure in mind. A canvas looking back at me from the easel with only assorted colors and no form can be quite perplexing but finding the missing figure can be extremely gratifying.


You See Right Thru Me

“You See Right Thru Me” Acrylic, 36″ x 24″


With each new painting, I challenge myself to produce a piece that I can someday call my Magnum Opus.


She Has Risen

“She Has Risen” Acrylic, 18″ x 14″


Living in the southwest, my work has been represented by several galleries in Arizona and can be found in private collections throughout the United States and Canada. My recent work was also published by the Women’s Caucus for Art in 2013.

  4. I have seen your images using the back as the main interest, but seeing so many of your thoughtful, emotion filled artwork is a wonderful treat. Love the art path you are on and yes the palette knife adds that much more. Congrats.

  5. Your art is beautiful, Dyanne! But I also loved your narrative. It really expresses the passion you have for your work. I had no idea you were so completely absorbed-mind, body, spirit- when you paint! Fascinating!

    • Thank you Karla…I’m glad you picked up on the fact that it is a combination of mind, body and spirit. I’m lucky that all three factors, occasionally, come into play at the same time.
