The Artist Says:

Thoughts are but dreams till their effects be tried. - William Shakespeare


Born in San Mateo, California to an artist Mother, Diane started manipulating paint at an early age. Her first job at the family art supply store gave her the opportunity to pour through a multitude of books and experiment with a myriad of materials.

Diane’s oil paintings are recognized for their Contemporary Impressionistic style. In her own words “it’s all about the focus, the purpose, the one strong statement”.  Her palette is limited to as few color choices as possible which makes her familiar vivid color harmonies really sing.
Spontaneous brush work with broken color passages flow in and out of her paintings, while the figure is the core source of her inspiration. The challenge to capture the surrounding atmosphere as well as the subject is a puzzle that keeps drawing her back to the human form. Her pursuit of capturing the essence of her subjects has rewarded her with accolades from many regional and national art shows.

As a figurative artist it is her goal to create a open ended visual story which will engage the viewer. She orchestrates her reference material  in much the same way movie producers plan their work. This begins with selecting the location and lighting conditions to set the overall theme for the painting. This is further refined by creating story boards, quick sketches and selecting props and costumes to set the scene.
Diane is a member of the American Impressionist Society, The Oil Painters of America and a Signature Member of The American Women Artists.

Her work can be found at the Meyer Vogel Gallery, 122 Meeting St., Charleston South Carolina, also online at DianeEugsterArt.com
