Voted Tucson's Best Visual Artist five times, Diana Madaras says painting "fills me with joy." She is equally well known for her bold, colorful artwork as for her generous charitable giving. Madaras owns two galleries in Tucson, Arizona that feature her work exclusively, and is president of the nonprofit Art for Animals Foundation.Madaras is a colorist who celebrates the subtle, natural beauty of ordinary scenes in a way that is both intense and dramatic. She paints in both watercolor and acrylic and has a diverse portfolio - from brilliant desert landscapes to expressionistic portraits.A signature member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild, Madaras has been featured in a dozen one-woman shows and her art has hung in the Tucson Museum of Art. Much in demand for commissioned artwork, Madaras has completed paintings for Westin, Loews, and Miraval resorts.

  • A “MUST” see! Beautiful display of art. Not just Madaras, but guest artists display as well! Excellent “informed” on site staff. Couldn’t have been more helpful. No regrets! Purchased a beautiful piece of Diana’s artwork.
  • I have ordered a few products from the website a print, Christmas cards and calendar. The products come promptly and packaged very well. Her prints are gorgeous! All of her products are gorgeous.
  • I purchased a picture online for my mom's 80th Christmas gift. The staff contacted my to ask if I'd like it signed by Diana. Who could refuse that offer! I feel they went above and beyond with their customer service. I was super happy as was my mom! Thank you!!
  • Recently visited Madaras Gallery’s new location on N. Swan Rd.. The gallery is beautiful! Upon perusing the various rooms I came upon a still life that I have been admiring for a while! Well, it took me all of 5 minutes to convince myself, I must have this beautiful art piece! Not long thereafter I found myself walking out of the gallery with a new addition to my home! Well, o.k., I know you want to know which piece I selected, don’t you? I chose.....Pat’s Flowers!! I have had numerous compliments, as it compliments the colors in my living/dining areas!! Thank you Diane for the beautiful art you share with us!!
  • Wonderful art pieces by local talents. Always find something extra when we go there. Sometimes for gifts, sometimes not.
