About Diane

Fall has  arrived here in Massachusetts bringing us the vibrant colors  for drinking in and for painting as well. I have lived here for over a year...hard to believe. Each day passes so quickly. Although missing life, friends and painting in Vermont, I am enjoying more urban subject matter in these bedroom towns around me.  People enjoy paintings of their homes especially, and so I am busier than ever. I also enjoy teaching a watercolor class at a near-by senior center with masks and social distancing of course. 

Formerly from the Midwest, Diane earned an art degree from Iowa State University and has taken many watercolor workshops over the years. For several years she managed her own summer gallery in Vermont and exhibited and sold her work regularly throughout the state and beyond. Since moving to Massachusetts outside of Boston she paints more urban scenes.
