Biography


Born in Massachusetts, Diane moved to Maine at an early age, where her love of nature took root. Constantly drawing as a child, she won a state wide art contest at the age of eight. A lifelong passion for art was born. After raising her four children and a career in teaching, Diane was able to pursue art full time, where she quickly developed a love for plein air painting. Working in both oils and watercolors, she finds her greatest joy working outside in nature.

Diane is mostly self-taught, but has studied in workshops with Skip Lawrence, Joe Miller, Eric Wiegardt, Quang Ho, John Poon, and Kathie Odom among others. Diane's art has been exhibited in numerous juried shows, galleries, and art museums. Her work hangs in collections in the United States and internationally.
