About The Artist

Artisan Elegance is owned and operated by Diana Rice. Diana was trained in the field of decorative painting in professional studios in Texas. Diana's interest has been attending workshops and classes since 2001. Until recently her activity in the decorative arts' field was creating tasteful environments around friends and family. In 2010 the call of becoming a practicing decorative artist could no longer be denied. Knowing the inevitable was occurring, she has been updating her skills with new products that not only allow a homeowner or business owner to be surrounded with an atmosphere of self expression, but are positive for the environment. Diana is a member of Bayou City Artisans, the Houston Chapter of IDAL, the International Decorative Artisan League.
