Mornington artist celebrates her new career by giving away two paintings

Front Page

Artist Diana Merfeldiene.

Diana Merfeldiene, an emerging artist from Latvia but now living in Mornington, first discovered her passion for art during her childhood in the beautiful city of Riga.

However she never thought to pursue art as a career as she had been told from an early age that “you can’t make a living as an artist!”

She moved to Ireland in 2004, fell in love with the country, met her husband and became a mum to four beautiful girls and throughout it all continued working in logistics.

But all this time Diana was quietly dreaming of becoming a full time artist one day.

Everything changed last year when lockdown gave her space to rethink and revaluate the priorities in her life.

“Every day I heard the little voice inside louder and louder calling me to pursue my passion” she said.

Finally Diana made the brave decision to quit her job and fulfil her long time passion to become a professional artist.

She is now creating special artwork and she loves to experiment with different processes, paints, colours and media as she interprets what she sees and how she feels.


It took her a while to accept herself as an artist, let her creativity flow and stop listening to her inner critic and now it is her purpose in life to help other people to do the same

To celebrate the beginning of her art career and also her birthday, Di decided to give away two of her horse paintings “White Horse” and “Dark Horse” (above).
