About Diane

Watercolor painting has been my passion for many years and it certainly helped to keep me sane during this past year. Hopefully the covid lockdown will be behind us soon giving us more freedom to do what we love with other people. 

I earned a degree in graphic design from Iowa State University and raised a big family after settling in New England from the midwest. What a gift as I never run out of subject matter, I paint usually from my own digital pictures taken in and around my home here in Massachusetts. ​
