The work of Diana Sudyka is utterly enchanting. Inspired by the medium of folk art, there is a strong tie between man and nature in each of her illustrations. Diana Sudyka also tends to focus on partially silhouetted images. In this way, people are able to identify with the people and animals depicted in each illustration much more easily.

Based in Chicago, Illinois, Diana Sudyka incorporates text and beautiful patterns that embellish the otherwise minimalist artworks. In a way, they add a level of texture as well, which is interesting to note. Poetic and romantic, My Modern Met states, "'They let themselves be swept away with it all,' is just one of the romantic sentiments that you’ll find in her illustrations."
