In 1997, Diane found her “artistic home” using a palette knife as her favorite tool to create paintings.
Through her method of painting with this tool, which gives her a strong tactile feel of the paint, this artist finds the freedom to explore and express Diane’s favorite subjects in a manner that is visually, as well as emotionally, satisfying. Each painting becomes an adventure of personal expression that aims at simplicity and beauty.
Diane is always inspired by the natural world with its many wonderful shapes, colors, and textures allowing her paintings to become expressions of impressionistic realism. This West Michigan artist has been accepted to exhibit in over 80 events in the USA and Florence, Italy. Her paintings have won several awards over the years. Diane and her art have been featured in publications such as International Artist, American Art Collector and Artist’s Magazine.
