Diane Leon


Diane was born in New York City. She began her formal art studies at The Art Students League where she met her husband John Ferdico, also an artist. They both live in New York but maintain a home base in Spain.

Art and Spain are Diane's passions and the inspiration for her work. Her abstract works are the result of three decades of internalizling the Iberian Peninsula. The canvases represent memory, imagination, personal experience and cultural traditions. She comments:

'Greeks, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Visigoths, Celtiberians, Romans and Moors have made Spain a rich and fascinating place to contemplate the status of who I am. The vast openness of the sea, sky, light, mountains and Mediterranean culture has had a profound affect upon me.'

Two of Diane's new paintings have been chosen by the Art in Embassies Program of the United States Department of State to be exhibited in the US Embassy Residence in Lima, Peru.
