Diana Nadal

Portland, Oregon, USA

Artistic expression has been an integral part of Diana's professional and personal life. Her early exposure to art and the encouragement she received from others motivated her to pursue a balance between her creative gifts and achieving her life's goals. Diana Nadal, a native Oregonian, picked up a paint brush at a watercolor class on the veranda of her hotel while on vacation 9 years ago in Hawaii and hasn’t stopped painting! She paints realistically using strong colors on a variety of surfaces including Yupo and AquaBord. Her inspiration comes from her travels, people watching, and her photos of subjects--wine related art, especially wine caves; boats, reflections on water and other surfaces and figurative portraits.
