Catholic Painter: ‘Everyone Needs Joy, Hope and Light’| National Catholic Register

Diana Durantel is a painter who resides in London with her family. Originally from Romania, she studied math and finance in France for her undergraduate and masters’ degrees. She and her family have lived in Japan, New York and now London. Though she still nurtures a love for math and the order it gives, her greatest love comes from painting. She uses this medium to express the truths of the Catholic faith.   How did you become interested in painting? Early in life, I was attracted to the beauty of nature and the strong colors in flowers, sunsets and the changing seasons. For me, color and light are a sign of life and God’s presence in his creation around us. Growing up in communist Romania, everything around me was gray, echoing the lack of freedom. Painting was a way to express my hope and desire for a beautiful and freer life and something better.
