Diane studied at Manchester School of Art. Her career as a Professional Artist has developed over the last ten years around a career in Education and Children’s services. Her highly prized work is currently featured in National and International exhibitions. She works across a variety of mediums threading her experiences of places as far apart as Africa, Scotland and Iceland where the atmosphere and light are so very different.

Diane’s work continues to be inspired by the physical and emotional impact that being in the landscape has on her senses, sometimes described as “breath in the landscape.” Her focus is to create the atmosphere of each place. She enjoys building many layers of paint over time echoing the way landscapes have developed, also exploring the layering process of texturing with found elements. Her work often walks a tightrope between representational and abstract or expressive painting. She is interested in conveying a sense of movement and time reflecting on her journeys and supporting lasting impressions and responses. Her research and travels are illuminated by a deep connection to her ancestors and her sense of family.

Diane is a member of the Professional Artists team of the Society of All Artists (S.A.A). Her work has been featured in the publications Paint and Artists and Illustrators and often features on the Painters online link.

She continues to find pleasure in tutoring and mentoring others and works with  Sketch Trips  - art holiday providers

Alongside her exhibition, Diane will be running a 3-day workshop course in acrylic painting during her exhibition from Monday 24th -Wednesday 26th of October.
