Diana Russo

I was born in Belgium, and raised in the US as the only child of an artist father and loving mother. As a retired art teacher I’m comfortable using various art media, and work in watercolor, acrylic, pastel, clay and printmaking. Currently I use printing techniques to create various types of art journals. Zen philosophy, religious symbols, and nature are often themes in my work. Making inspiration journals allows me to transform traditional and unexpected items into meaningful works of art. Symbols and images from nature play a significant role in my art work and journals. I enjoy exploring color, various media, and new ways to communicate emotions and I hope to inspire the viewer of my little books with gratitude, peace and love of nature.

Artwork in Ritual Single-sheet book show (2013)

Angels are students in heaven and teachers on earth. I saw the angel in marble and carved it until I set it free.
Angels         
walk beside me and be my friend friends become our chosen family a real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out
Friend         
What we think, we become love is the absence of judgement
Just Be
