Pickering based artist Diana Armstrong has developed a unique approach to her art, which she styles as "Magical Realism", drawing much of her inspiration from literary sources. Her methods and technique are based on skilled draughtsmanship and handling of oil paint and the underlying narrative in her work follows in the tradition of the earlier Masters.
We first discovered Diana's work when we exhibited a series of animal themed works in 2014. Since then her career has blossomed, winning an award for her painting at the "New Lights" Art Competition. Then, from relative obscurity having never exhibited her work publicly, her paintings have appeared in exhibitions at the Mall Galleries and Hay Hill Galleries in London as well as 2 London art fairs, with her works selling to collectors in the UK and overseas.
