Diana Watson

Australian artist Diana Watson’s elegant still-life paintings have earned the Sydney-based artist great repute locally, and now it seems the rest of the world is catching on, with selected works set to appear on the silver screen, in Hollywood production Collateral Beauty, as well as in celebrity chef Rick Stein’s new restaurant in Marlborough, Wiltshire (UK). Watson has been honing her talent for more than 20 years, the joy she takes in her work evident in each brush stroke. Her paintings resonate with a sense of warmth, nostalgia, depth and intrigue – at once beguiling and comforting.

“I have been painting for a long time. I studied commercial art and fine art when I left school a million years ago. I worked in advertising as a fashion artist before motherhood and when my kids were older I had time to do what I wanted to do.”

‘What inspires me to make art?” asks Australian artist, Diana Watson. “Everything. It is a complete way of life, never far from my thoughts. Seeing beauty all around me, colours, shapes, shadows, nature and the challenge of putting it on canvas. I love Picasso’s quote…”

‘The purpose of art is to wash the dust of everyday life from our souls’ – Pablo Picasso.
