Meet Local Celebrated Artist Diana Sartor

Diana Sartor
Since 1887, Sennelier Inks have been regarded as the ultimate standard of quality for fine artist.

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Diana Sartor’s Charlestown, RI studio to preview pieces from her upcoming show, Color Waves, kicking off this August at Wickford’s Coastal Living Gallery. Diana is a mixed media artist who creates stunningly colorful and vibrant works of art using rich, brilliant Sennelier Inks.

Diana’s creative process allows her to fully explore the unique brilliance, brightness and vibration of color in all its varying shades.

Inspired By Nature

Diana Sartor
Collected elements of nature from Diana’s backyard overlooking the salt pond inspire her art.

Inspiration for Diana’s art comes from nature. Her studio is an expansive space with windows overlooking a gorgeous back yard of gardens, conifers, antique black cherry trees, and with views of glistening Ninigret Pond on the horizon.

Whether Diana is creating a painting or collage, her inspiration comes from whatever captures her imagination just outside her studio window. Perhaps a fiddlehead fern she’s collected along her manicured garden path, or a snow squall taking form as it dances across her yard.

Diana shares:

“My environment strongly influences my work. Having developed a personal language with color leads to beautiful surprises, translating inspirations to paper. Watching the bloom & flow as vibrantly colored artists inks find their way around the surface of paper is reason enough to paint!”

I discovered Green Hill, RI seeking simplicity. Our family rented a classic Rhode Island cottage on the hill for nearly 10 years. In 2015 we realized our dream to call a place here our own. I started this blog to share stories about the special people and places around Green Hill & to create an online resource of information for residents and guests of our special beach community.
