Art by Darlia Hobbs and Mahto
Darlia Hobbs has lived in the DFW area since 1962. In 2005, she began her exciting journey into the world of “mixed-media” in The Woman’s Club of Fort Worth, with instructor Judy Sager. Always eager to learn new techniques, Darlia is constantly learning new and intriguing methods of abstract painting “outside the box,” which makes her artwork fresh and unique. As she likes to put it: “the more you look, the more you see.” This creative energy has earned her over 30 awards.
