Diana Rivera is creating Abstract Expressionism Art

My name is Diana Rivera, and I am an artist. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always been creative. I started out selling my handmade goods 16 or 17 years ago making handmade vegan soaps at folk festivals and punk shows throughout New York City and New Jersey. As my need for the creative flow grew, so did my interests. I’d done embroidery work and needlepoint as a child, so I started back up again. Then little by little I started to create more and more and more.
When my first born child was 6 months old, I decided that I wanted to keep some sort of track of my creative journey. And so, 11 years ago, I decided to start a blog. In thinking of my creative journey, and in thinking of the sort of person I am, I chose the name “The Craftaholic” because for me, creativity was becoming a truly addictive thing.


Watercolors-
My artwork tells a story of my life in the form of watercolor pop surrealism. I paint pictures of girls that tell my auto-biography. In these paintings, you can see what I am feeling or thinking at the moment which they were painted.

On Canvas: 
On canvas, I use acrylic paint, and these paintings are more statements of the world around me, the world outside of myself. My canvas work is a story outside of myself, outside of my biography, or my story. I use my own handmade stencils that I draw and hand cut, then create beautiful images that are symbolic in nature.
