Diane Ingri Levy Member Since April 2015 Artist Statement Diane Ingri Levy finds BEAUTY inherent in everything that exists and aspires to represent that magnificent reality in form, line, and color in her icons, sacred art, portraits, and nature studies.
Her use of oils, egg tempera, and gold leaf provide her with the tools needed to represent a variety of styles. The primary inspiration for her egg tempera paintings is from the art of the Byzantine and Early Renaissance periods, and her oil paintings show more of an impressionistic influence.
In addition to painting both in her studio and outdoors en plein air, she enjoys kyacking and time spent with friends over a good cup of tea. Before embarking seriously in art 15 years ago, Diane worked in fields related to her degrees in physics and environmental health science.
Diane specializes in the field of iconography and accepts commissions as well as making these high quality reproductions of her work.
