About The Artists
The Bermuda Colours Calendar celebrates the artwork of Diana and Eric Amos. This is their fifth joint venture as artists for the calendar although Diana was featured on her own in 1991 and 1998.
One of Bermuda’s best known artists, Diana was born and raised here. Her work draws liberally on a carefree youth amidst plants, animals and close family. A love of Bermuda is reflected in all of her work as she draws inspiration from the natural landscape and light that she knows so well. Subtle use of colours and great compositional strength give her work a timeless quality. Diana has a Masters Degree in Fine Art. In 1999, she received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Bermuda Arts council to mark her enormous contribution to the world of fine art in Bermuda.
Eric was transplanted from Surrey, England, to Bermuda in 1956. For the past 30 years he has been painting the birds of Bermuda. He is the author, illustrator and publisher of the highly acclaimed book “Guide to the Birds of Bermuda” and is still currently working on the second edition. While participating in a series of oceanographic research trips to the Antarctic in the 1960’s and 1970’s he became fascinated with birds. His work has been featured in the Bird Artists of the World Exhibition at the prestigious
Tryon Gallery in London. He also designed in 1971 Deliverance commemorative postage stamp issue for Bermuda, and in 1994 was awarded the Bermudian Magazine’s Gold Award.
Both Diana and Eric’s works are in many private and corporate collections locally and abroad. They live a creative life and share a studio on Penno’s Drive on the St. George’s waterfront. Their daughter Stacey has followed the family tradition into the art world.
Original paintings and a full selection of prints by Diana and Eric Amos
are available at their studio on Penno’s Drive in St. Georges.
