Bee True is a portrait of a serene young girl surrounded by flowers and a gentle bee.

Bee True

“Truth, the substance of her heart. She carries a peaceful presence, something so sweet to draw all those striving to her. It bubbles from within, a power not of her own. So sweet to the taste, a trueness undaunted.“

Dimitra Milan

Dimitra has mastered several techniques for both her classic oil pieces and her bold mixed media oil paintings. All of her oil paintings embody rich, dark colors and stylized brush strokes. She uses subtractive tools to develop the highlights of every piece, bringing the form to life. After allowing the initial layer of paint to dry, Dimitra then adds more paint and layers creating different effects and textures; some elements are left abstract and others are rendered more realistically.

Dimitra's mixed media oil paintings receive this same thoughtful treatment, only with several additional elements and mediums. Some include layering different papers on the canvas, creating one-of-a-kind characteristics and a collage effect. On others, she may be inspired to add acrylic or spray paint.

A master painter, Dimitra Milan's whimsical and surreal artwork reflects a dreamy world where anything is possible.
