         About the Artist - Diane Yousouf

I am a Sydney based Contemporary Landscape artist working in oils, acrylics, soft pastels and watercolour.  

I love the colours of the Australian terrain.  The dramatic bushland  and vibrant seascapes attract me and I always try to capture that distinctively intense Australian light.

My works are held in private and corporate collections in Australia and overseas.

Bankstown Art Society is one of Sydney's oldest art societies. The society has a rich history with many well known artists that have been members or visitors to the society. I was a member of Bankstown Art Society for ten years. During that time I held various positions on the committee. These included being the society Social Secretary and the Bankstown Art Society's delegate to the Combined Art Societies of Sydney committee. I was the Vice President and Secretary for the Bankstown Art Society for three years. During this time I also helped to put together the Society newsletter.  

My time with the Bankstown Art Society was always interesting and varied. Holding these positions with BAS provided a wonderful opportunity to support the BAS members and promote the society within the local community.

I am currently an exhibiting member with the Combined Art Societies of Sydney, Oatley 101 Society of Artists, Friends of Campbelltown Art Gallery and the Pastel Society of Victoria Australia.
