Diana Saffo Bono’s strength as an artist is in her passion for her art.. An impressionism, sometimes expressionism painter, and excellent colorist, she is best known for her dramatic brush work. A self taught award winning artist, she works in oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastel, charcoal, and collage. She enjoys the unique characteristics and challenges these mediums present and frequently lets the subject matter determine the medium used. Her passion for her art creates an energy that can be seen and often felt in her work. She is delighted when the viewer smiles or laughs at something discovered or is transported to another place or time. Diana’s artwork is a celebration of life.
