Diana Shamounki

Pillars of Fine Art Movement in Jordan

From an early age, Diana Shamounki was driven by a passion for art and a deep love for the landscapes, people and spirit of her native land. Her distinctive cityscapes and landscapes are well known and beloved throughout the Middle East.

Her signature paintings of Jerusalem evoke a profound love for her birthplace and are portrayed in bluish gray tones or in a wash of bright sunshine, capturing each scene vividly as a moment in time. In addition to her landscapes, Diana has forged a style all her own through her portraits of the native people of Jordan depicting their dignified features and noble carriage. Her paintings range from dramatic large canvases to small, whimsical paintings that she likens to love poems.
