About the Artist
Diana Ormanzhi is an oil painter, illustrator, and printmaker currently living and working in Sacramento, California. Her surrealistic artwork pushes realistic imagery beyond how it is perceived in daily life. Organic forms often clash against geometric elements, fairytale characters are placed in new settings, and science fiction comes to life through her illustrations.
Diana has been creating for as long as she can remember, but it wasn’t until mid-2015 that she decided to pick up a brush and teach herself how to paint. Since then, oil painting has been her preferred medium of expression, however, she does not limit herself to just that. Her portfolio also includes work in colored pencil, pen and ink, oil pastel, gouache, drypoint etching, encaustic, and ceramic sculpture.
In 2018, Diana received an Associate’s Degree in Art from American River College and is currently working towards a Gallery Management Certificate. Diana continues to display her artwork in various Sacramento galleries, as well as recently making it available online.
