Giselle Diaz was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Diaz resides in San Antonio, Texas. She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts and a Bachelor’s Degree in Art History and Criticism from The University of Texas at San Antonio. Her work consists of memories acquired from her native island of Puerto Rico and the culture is her inspiration. Its’ beautiful landscapes, colors and scents are mirrored in most of Giselle’s paintings. She begins by taking photos of objects that she gravitates to and of places that she has traveled. The mixture of these images and memories are then poured over Giselle’s palette to create this unique blend of colors.
Currently, her work is part of the permanent art collection of The University of Texas at San Antonio. She has exhibited work in Mexic-Arte Museum, Austin, TX; Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, Blue Star Contemporary Art Center, Duran Art Gallery, Frost Bank Plaza Club, Debra Benditz Gallery, Centro de Artes, City of San Antonio, San Antonio, TX. Her paintings are in numerous private collections in San Antonio, TX; Boston, MA; Washington D.C.; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Bologna, Italy; and Paris, France.
