Creative work of Diana Vouba is deep, serious and diverse. She is a master and a great human being, which is so important for the artist as the teacher of life. Diana is imbued with dignity and greatness of the smallest thing in the world, which is so touching and beautiful in the "Portraits of Flowers" series. Her flowers receive an unprecedented power and voice. Colossal Iris is like Vrubel's Demon. Calla lilies are like trumpets of Jericho, which are not only able to please the ear, but also destroy the fortress.

All these giant flowers bear a dream of the lost Paradise as well as the premonition of possible hellish turmoil. Irrespective of their shape complexity not a single work of hers shows though the insincerity, cold or false effects. But throughout all works there are: a smart beating heart, feeling of courage and kindness of a person, who has experienced a lot and worked hard. Love towards life's every moment and towards work shines thorough in her every work - work that is capable of stopping this moment, by capturing it, being happy or sad, but always perfect, because life is a blessing.
