    Diana Forbes

    Throughout her childhood in the cultural city of Leipzig, Germany, Diana’s hands were covered in glue from her fondness for arts and crafts. Her mother was a devoted crafter, her father loved to paint and her family’s creative passions left an indelible impression on Diana. Early memories of sitting with her uncle, an acclaimed sculptor, modelling delicate flower petals from Play-Doh together at the kitchen table, held with fond affection.

    Her travels around the world, with her early corporate career, reignited a freedom of expression that Diana craved. On settling in the UK and starting a family, Diana  immersed herself in arts and crafts with her children, inspired by the organic beauty of nature. This reawakening of her creative spirit prompted Diana to step away from her corporate life to immerse herself fully in her artistic passion.

    Diana’s expressive mixed media works give a fresh, joyful twist to the simplicity of everyday organic shapes. Based at her studio in Oxfordshire and inspired by the countryside and nature around her home, Diana enjoys experimenting with local clay, chalk and charcoal collected on walks with her family. Intuitive, bold strokes, fine marks and textural layers, as well as a strong focus on collage are central to Diana’s collections.

    Diana’s works are exhibited and collected internationally.
