About

Dyana Hesson refers to herself as a botanical artist. She was born in 1966 in the Gold Country of California, where she was happiest outdoors. Her weekends were spent with trips to the local nursery, as well as planting and weeding the natural landscaping of her family home. When she was twelve, her father gave her a camera. She began photographing all that was interesting to her; the trees, the landscape and the flowers. After a short stay in Southern California, where she met and married her husband in 1985, she moved to Arizona. Although the climate and landscape differed drastically from that of Northern California, her inspiration did not. Dyana became interested in painting as a way to express things that she could not with a camera. She chose oil as her medium because it possessed a fluid quality perfect for the subjects she was painting. She began to experiment with thin layers of carefully blended paint and the results were luminous. She finished her degree in Art at Arizona State University in 1991. “It is a privilege and a pleasure to be an artist in today’s world. A pleasure because I get to wake up every morning and do what I love, and pour my soul into creating something beautiful. A Privilege, because with creating comes responsibility. My desire is to create a safe place where your eyes can land and rest for a while. It has been said that only two things can pierce our hearts: beauty and affliction. And if this is so, we need a measure of beauty in our lives in equal proportion to our affliction. My unspoken agreement with my collectors and my fans is that I will always bring my best to you. I will work hard to bring a measure of beauty to your world with all the ability that God has given me.” Dyana lives in Mesa, Arizona with her husband, daughter, and Jack Russell Terrier, Boon.
