In 2000, Diana Elrod left a full-time job and had ideas about a collage she wanted to make; it was a disaster. After a few beginning art classes, she has expanded her skills over the years by taking a wide variety of classes to learn new techniques.

Diana’s work can be quirky and evocative; some of the consistent threads include color palette and organization. She has left behind a certain level of worry that her work is “good enough.” At this point, she doesn’t fret over what other people think—the only person she wants to please is herself.

This piece is one of a series of paintings of just the suits of famous dada (male) artists, including Picabia, Giacometti, and others.
