D i a n a H r a b o s ky
In 2009 Diana began her foray into the art world with colored pencil. She is self-taught using instructional books authored by other artists. Her start was slow, producing only three pieces a year, due to a hectic corporate work schedule. But after semi-retirement late in 2012, with more time to devote to artwork, her inventory began to grow.
In 2014 she dove head-first into learning about abstract acrylic painting and is fascinated by myriad techniques, including mixed media and pouring.. The combination of colored pencil and painting provides a wonderful creative balance.
“Like my life, eclectic choices are part of my style. It’s so much fun to explore various designs, color palettes, and mediums. Experimentation doesn’t always produce what you anticipate!”
In addition to Cary Gallery of Artists where artwork changes monthly, Diana’s award-winning art can be found at The Cotton Company in downtown Wake Forest, and in periodic exhibits around the state.
Diana is a member of Colored Pencil Society of America, CPSA District Chapter #114, and Fine Arts League of Cary.
Her other passion is social partner dancing, including Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, country two-step, folk waltz, Cajun and Zydeco, Salsa, slow blues, Hustle, ballroom, and more. For over 25 years she has been an active part of the dance community in the DC-metro area and now in the Triangle.
