Diana Archer \"I am an international artist who has had exhibitions in both Europe and the USA. In the last two years I have been painting modern day mistresses based on the past ladies of Versailles but with classy up beat women. Now I have extended this theme to include women who are beautiful, but may also be subversive and shocking too. More recently my new style is,\" fashionable, sexy, colourful with a hint of intrigue!\" 2017 Feb.

My paintings can be seen on www.saatchiart.com/diana-archer and also on the New York website www.artupclose.com/diana-archer It was in 2011 when I began to develop my style, then, of “Venetian Blue”, a name chosen to describe my feminine alter ego. She was always painted blue, in acrylic paint on paper and usually nude or in carnival outfits and set in exotic locations. During this time I was Artist in Residence at Gallery 150 in Leamington and then as an artist in situ, in the art gallery opposite. My career quickly then developed, with my first international art fair in 2015.\"
