“I want my artwork to inspire people to make them feel anything is possible. I want people to understand their true identity and believe in their destiny.“
A celebrated artist by the age of 15, Dimitra Milan’s extraordinary paintings can be found in private collections across the U.S. and Europe. Born into a family of established artists, Dimitra has been developing her style and ability from a very young age at the Milan Art Institute in Arizona, founded by her parents, Elli and John Milan. Her paintings can be described as abstract realism, with romantic elements portraying a dreamy atmosphere where anything is possible. Her artwork is layered with symbolism, often provoking deep emotions. Dimitra expresses love, hope, authenticity, and beauty through her brushstrokes. She often finds inspiration from her dreams she has at night. Like Van Gogh once said, “I paint my dreams, and I dream my paintings,” she also lives by this.
Giving back to charitable causes continues to be an important part of Dimitra’s work as an emerging artist. Her paintings are regularly donated to non-profit organizations that advocate against human trafficking and "Comfy Cozies 4 Chemo" which provides assistance to families and children with cancer. Through an intensive home school program, Dimitra graduated 2-years early from high school, allowing her to focus full-time on her art career. Dimitra currently lives in Arizona with her family, and travels regularly to Greece and other international destinations to experience the world and gain new inspirations. When Dimitra isn’t traveling, she can be found at home outside of Phoenix either painting in her studio, or riding her horse in the picturesque Southwest outdoors.
