Giselle Diaz was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 1961. In 1983 she moved to San Antonio, Texas with her husband, where they currently live. Her works consists of memories acquired from her native island of Puerto Rico and the culture is her inspiration. Its' beautiful landscapes, colors and scents are mirrored in most of Giselle’s paintings. She begins by taking photos of objects that she gravitates to and of places that she has traveled to with her husband. The mixture of these images and memories are then poured over Giselle’s palette to create this unique blend of colors.
Currently, she is the Senior Administrative Associate to the UTSA Art Collection curator, Arturo Almeida.
