About Me








Artist Statement:

A few years ago, during a painting class I was teaching, one of my  students confessed how much she had enjoyed her career as a nurse. And, that if she had a choice, she would do it all over again.

Then,  she asked me what I would pursue if I were given the opportunity to  do it all over. Without a moment of hesitation I replied that I would still choose  to be an artist.

Artists metaphorically give water to empty souls, create bridges of  friendships and teach us about passion.

Painting for me is a way of exploring or reflecting about the place  I live or travel, connecting with nature or silently admiring the  creative moments of our lives – ultimately transcribing them onto  canvas.

Raised and educated in Bucharest – Romania, GABRIELA DIACONU graduated with M.F.A. from the Academy of Fine Arts.
Since her arrival in Canada she has continued to grow and mature as an established painter and tapestry artist, widely exhibiting in the Vancouver area.
Created in a personal style, her artworks capture a particular quality of light and a typical atmosphere of the Canadian landscape.
Art critics agree with the quality and high caliber of her work found in collections from Australia, Canada, England, Holland, Italy, Romania, Singapore and the U.S.A.
