Nada Diwan: “Life Blooms” An Art Exhibit @ Laura’s @ Laura's Library
Jan 10 – Mar 17 all-day

Nada Diwan lives in Austin, Texas. Although her initial interest in art occurred when she was very young, she only began exploring this passion later in her life.

Her primary subjects include landscapes, portraits, and still life. In recent years she has been inspired to capture the Texas Hill Country. She has a range of experience in different mediums, from oils and acrylics to pastels and watercolors.

She hopes her work brings some beauty and happiness to the viewer.
