“When you cannot use words to let people know you what mean, use colors and draw a picture” words by Diego Voci
Alessandra and Lady (Diego’s favorite dog)
Alessandra shares… “I can remember when daddy was drawing when I was child. When daddy was working I often was at his side and watched him how a new painting was born. He was smoking his cigarettes and tell me stories. I learned a lot of different techniques on how to draw a picture. When daddy got a painting in his mind, he was in his own world. I learned a lot of what Art can be. He once said to me “when you cannot use words to let people know what you mean, use colors and draw a picture”. He was my personal philosopher, that was my childhood.”
Alessandra, adored by Diego, gave him enrichment of life, until lung cancer took him from her at her age 11.

Coop bought the “Indianer” as a gift for one of Coop and Patti’s Native American son-in-laws. Why is this significant? In 1973, Diego and his wife Helga on their 1st trip to the US included a Southwest destination. While there they traveled to several pueblos including Taos and Santa Fe. Diego rendered many a #Native-American from memory.
Gabrielle, one of 6 daughters to Coop and Patti, raised two very talented, smart and very attractive children: Shane, 25, and Aliah, 21.
#Internationally Collected Artist Antonio Diego Voci honored “Madonna” (The word is from Italian ma #donna, meaning “my lady“) all throughout his life as he created “My #Lady” in many of his works of art.
