Dia is a collaboration of the multi-faceted talents of its two principals – Mary Anderson and Penni Berrie. These eclectic sisters honored their talents in multiple mediums including graphic arts, clay, textiles, metal working and acrylics with the creative environs of Northern Michigan and the beaches of Southwest Florida. Over the course of their early years they created vibrantly colored paintings of sea life and nature ranging from the whimsical to the contemporary.
Over time they felt driven to a more complex expression in their art, stepping out if the natural works and into the more abstract. They unique nature and composition of these newer works evoke a very cerebral response. The energy of these sculptures on canvas breathes life into the art itself. The extension of the DIA signature adds further depth to the portfolio.
