“I have always been intrigued by color and texture.
Used simultaneously the rough feel and the soft but vibrant
hues set a mood for my paintings. Contrast of heavy texture
strike a balance between the familiar and the abstract.
Most figures are void of the eye and the nose feature thus
challenging the perceptive viewer to determine the subjects
personality by their posture position, tilt of the head,
joyfulmovement or expressive mouths”.




Diana Shannon-Young has built a reputation as an esteemed artist from Riverside, California. Although having studied art academically and with various other notable artists she is primarily self taught. Her work has garnered her much recognition and accolades. Diana prefers to explore the mixture of texture and color using acrylics, pastels and oils, and has developed her own unique style. “I create my original paintings with lot’s of time and love and aspire to touch the souls of many through spiritual enlightenment and a reminder of one big humanity. I hope to inspire the viewer to enjoy life’s abundant blessings”.

Diana sold her first painting over twenty-four years ago. Diana’s works have been commissioned by national organizations such as the Congressional Black Caucus Foudation  2004 official poster,  “Every Vote Counts”, as a commemorative poster for its’ 34th annual conference in Washington, D.C. She has twice graced the cover of The Journal Of The National Medical Association and her works have been published in Ebony Magazine.
