Diana Stanga creates botanical illustrations bold yet elegant, finding inspiration in the variety and beauty of the natural world. Each striking design expertly balances intricate detail with areas of emptiness, for a contemporary vision of botanical.

With more than 15 years of experience as a Textile Designer, Diana Stanga’s paintings are informed by her innate understanding of tone, texture, and pattern. 

The first series of illustrations, ‘Japonica’, was designed after discovering the tropical flora on the Japanese archipelago of Okinawa. Using her signature monochromatic halftone, Diana adopted a classical technique for botanical studies by the finest 00 brush or a nib pen to lay delicate strokes, one next to the other - building each image in a slow and meditative fashion.
