About

diana d darden - artist/designer

There was a period in my life when I was spinning.

Balance came for me when I embraced my truth, and my truth is that I am a visual artist. I specialize in collage, mixed media, painting, sculpture and decorative arts. I do not discriminate between mediums because the constant flow between them reflects the very spirit of artistry. Life is constantly changing, I am constantly changing, and it is by finding beauty in the chaos I am able to stop spinning and harness my inspiration.

While I opened my online storefront in February 2014, the truth is I have always been an artist. Ever since childhood I would collect little trinkets, bits and pieces of discarded life, and find ways to reincarnate them into pieces of functional art. Many of my raw materials have been collected over a lifetime of adventures, and each of my pieces is truly one of a kind. In my art I use paper, crystals, ribbon, train tickets, stamps (from my father’s stamp collection), photographs, woods and anything else that strikes me as beautiful to bring a new physical presence to that which was once lost.

Much of my art is feminine in nature, and I draw great inspiration from the Virgin Mary. Color is another inspiration for me; in fact it is often the starting point for my pieces. My collages are so much more than the sum of their parts, their surfaces are beautiful, but they also have depth. When you look at them, you see that they are built of layers. You don’t see all the content unless you study it, and I truly believe this is a reflection of our very human nature.

Welcome to DianaDDarden!

I am an eclectic artist and I am proud to personally welcome you to my online shop. Here you will find a wide vary of my art, each piece guaranteed to be altered by me. I absolutely love my creations, and I feel lucky every single day to be able to share my pieces with the world. I am a big believer in surrounding yourself with beauty, and I hope my art can provide that for you.

I primarily offer collage and mixed media art, with a large influence from Catholicism. Many of my iconic pieces feature the Virgin Mary, but you will find I offer everything from icons to canvas jewelry and everything in between!

Whether or not you find a piece of art in my collection that inspires you, I want to challenge you to work hard, stay loyal to yourself and always love what you do. I know I do!
