“Mediterranean Mermaids” by Dianne Lynn Benanti, Palm Springs Branch (California); oil on canvas, 71×51; image embellished with digital art
I am a self-taught artist. I started out with traditional portraiture, which lead to large-scale oils in contemporary form.
In January 2020, I was asked to be an art contributor to the the Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Sciences for my artwork in the tribute to Elton John at the Oscars. The portrait image and inquiry can be found in the portfolio section of my website, Benanti.com.
I am very honored to be a part of the National League of American Pen Woman. I have a page on my website dedicated to this wonderful organization.
