    Diane has been on a creative journey all her life, starting with drawing at an early age and continuing with formal studies in art history and architectural design. Pursuing a life in the arts led to further study in printmaking, photography, life drawing and graphic design.

Although her career has included many creative disciplines, painting has always been her destination. As owner of a full-service graphic design and marketing firm for over a decade, the desire to paint grew until in 2003 a plein air workshop in Sedona became the turning point that inspired a dedication to painting outdoors, and confirmed the decision to transition into fine art. The light and landscape of the Southwest drew her to move to Arizona one year later. Diane’s work has won many awards and is included in private and corporate collections as well as having been selected for a 2006 exhibit at the West Valley Art Museum in Surprise, Arizona.

While living in Atlanta she was chairperson of programming for the Southeastern Pastel Society and a member of the Atlanta Artists Center. She has taught private and group painting classes during the last 8 years.
