Biography


 
 
 
 
            Diane Goldschmidt moved from Missouri to Oklahoma to attend law school.  With her Juris Doctorate and a Masters in Business Administration she became Senior Counsel to a major corporation in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
 
            Without any artistic training and quite by accident, she was bored while driving down the road on a Saturday afternoon in the 1990’s.  Thinking she could “slap some paint” on a canvas for fun she dropped into the local art store.  The clerk informed her that the store sponsored classes.   She called; she showed up; she painted; she was hooked.
 
            While initially self-taught in acrylics Diane recognized the need for further education.  Since then she has studied oil painting with Gary Lennon, Dan Robinson, David Leffel, Sherrie McGraw, Jacqueline Kamin, Dennis Parker, Carolyn Anderson and Leslie Lienau.
 
            Diane has organized several emerging artists for an annual exhibit known as “All About Art” as well as entering and selling in various art shows.
 
            Now semi-retired from the practice of law Diane devotes her time to painting, playing golf, traveling and reading.
