Diane has been painting with watercolors for many years and enjoys teaching others how to tackle and achieve success with the medium.
"My passion is painting the landscape beautiful in every season. The ever changing light offers unlimited inspiration for me along with the challenges associated with the medium. I typically paint from my own pictures, never leaving home without my smart phone. I view the world as a series of adjacent intersecting shapes and values hoping to capture the lights and darks in an interesting manner. My paintings are an interpretation of the places I visit and the vistas I capture around my home and beyond."
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.
Diane is a signature member of the Vermont Watercolor Society, an associate member of the New England Watercolor Society and a member of the Franklin Art Association.
Currently, Diane teaches watercolor at the Norfolk Senior Center.
