About the Artist: Diane Pereira
About Red Milk Crone
Red Milk Crone aka Lady Di is a mixed media artist who rebels against the traditional methods and styles, often confusing the viewer and making them fall into her world of works like a Venus fly trap.
She started painting and creating as a toddler in her mother’s kitchen with a phonebook and pens while her mother was cooking. As she grew, so did her art studies throughout her school years and college and University. Born and raised in Toronto to a daughter of a jewelry designer and maker, she had to grow up in a fast-paced and male-dominated art world with constant rejection and constant reminders of being a woman. Creating and painting for four decades allows Lady Di to constantly adapt, change, and ignore authority for the “art rules”.
“There are no rules when creating. Art is politics, whether it’s your views or not.”
Now a full-time artist and illustrator, Lady Di continues to push the dialogue that is often taboo. The mixed inspiration from Pablo Picasso, Leonara Carrington, and Francis Bacon all show through her work.
