Diana Benedetti was born and raised in Cartagena, Colombia, a city full of fable, history and legend that has been influential in her style as a painter. She has always been very intrigued by the nature of the human condition and this has allowed her to reflect on her mission in her life. She uses nature, color and objects as an instrument to express a message of hope, faith and love.

Diana has worked professionally as a full-time artist for over 30 years. She began her studies at the School of Fine Arts as a teenager and has studied fine arts at Georgia State University, Miami Dade College and the University of Miami. At the University of Miami she attended Art History courses that have helped expand her understanding of her art and the influence it has on human history. Her life as a woman, mother and wife have also been a source of inspiration for her work as a painter.

Diana's works are full of vibrant colors and textures that enrich their content and message. She uses oil paints because it is a medium that allows her to give a very particular consistency, permanent colors and unsurpassed quality. "I love the soft consistency and shine of oil paints that allow me to manipulate the paint in many ways due to its slow drying. I really like the durability of oil paint that with proper technique guarantees that a work of art will last a lifetime."

In her adulthood, Diana is recognized for her realistic work. She uses symbols that when brought together in her works tell a story of human nature, of her perfections and imperfections. Diana feels that she fulfills her mission when her work awakens emotions in the viewer. Through her talents, she aspires to improve the world and somehow make it a better place to live.
