Art by Draye
Eclectic, bohemian, fun, eccentric art, and wall hangings, crafted from mixed media, acrylic paint, collage, seashells, sea glass, metal, beads, wire, fabric, buttons and any other interesting “found object.
My name is Dianna Raye and welcome to Art by Draye. I have never had formal art training, I am almost 70 years old, and started painting a year ago when COVID hit. My brother said “Dianna, there has been something inside you trying to get free, and it found a hole!” And this, my art is the result of that freedom! I love painting, and creating unusual objects, using found objects, shells, sea glass, buttons, wire, folded and patinaed metal, collage, and any other interesting “find”. I am very ADD so, therefore, I flit from one painting/project to another, eventually completing one. My shop is a mix of soooo many elements, incorporating original acrylic mixed media art and paintings, bohemian wall hangings, and so much more. My favorite acrylic paintings are my “animalitos”, using collage, mixed media and acrylics to bring my animals to life. So please enjoy browsing! And thank you for your interest in “Art by Draye”!
