Two-week Artisan Spotlight show, featuring the work of Diana Perez

YAA Spotlight

A two-week Artisan Spotlight show, featuring the work of Diana Perez, will run from February 11th to 24th at the Yaquina Art Association Gallery in Newport.

Diana Pérez – Moya grew up in Bogotá, Colombia and moved to Oregon in 1999 bringing with her the shine of the tropical colors.

When she was 13 she discovered her love for color and art while taking oil classes with the well known Spanish painter Pepe Garcia. She studied different art mediums at the Universidad de los Andes, Casa Fabricato and Arturo Tejada Cano School in Bogotá.

Soon after arriving in Newport she took ceramic classes with ceramic artist Janet Wallace and drawing classes at YAA.

She is interested in upcycling and giving old things a new purpose as you will see in her collages and oyster painted shells. Her work will include oils, acrylics, glossies, collages and now she is also sharing the fun of color by presenting original drawings of pets (she will be accepting your pet pictures for this project), mermaids and more ready for you to color and frame.
