Talented 16-year-old artist captures her dreams in these vibrant and stunning paintings. Looking at the skill, attention to detail and beauty that is instilled into each piece of Dimitra Milan’s paintings, you can’t stop to be in awe when you hear that she is a 16-year-old. And unlike her fellow 16-year-old peers who are just starting to think about what they would like to do with the rest of their lives, Dimitra is already doing what she knows best and loves most. In fact, she did not start at 16, but began four years ago at the tender age of twelve.
Brought up by two artist parents, Dimitra grew up in Arizona, United States surrounded by art. She chose to be homeschooled so that she could dedicate her free time to art and painting. At the age of twelve, Dimitra began painting, somewhat in a professional capacity, after her parents opened up Milan Art Institute in Arizona and encouraged her to take any classes she liked.
At her parent’s institute, Dimitra immersed herself into the art world and learned everything in painting from classical oil painting techniques to contemporary mixed media. As a celebrated professional artist at the tender age of 16, Dimitra regularly travels the world and derives her painting inspiration from many scenes that she has encountered during her travel adventures. According to her, she has a profound work ethic that was imbued in her by her parents who also taught and encouraged her to find her identity as an artist.
Dimitra’s main dream is to inspire people, especially young girls through her artwork and make them feel that anything is possible and understand their true self. Being such a talented young girl, here are some of her stunning pictures.
