The Artist Says:


The final outcome of a finished painting is undoubtedly important, but from my standpoint the process is at least equally important.   Nearly every work that I do, involves an entirely new creative process.  It is that process that I am in love with!
 



Collectors Say:


"Diane Overmyer is quite simply Indiana's finest plein air painter.   Her subject selection, use of color and her technique are all perfect.   We are lucky to own three of Diane's original paintings plus we commissioned her to paint our lake cottage on canvas.   We are delighted with the 'Hoosier Cottage' work!    On top of being a talented and seasoned professional, she is a charming person.   We look forward to seeing every new piece she creates."  Randy and Deborah Brown, Lake Webster, Indiana.

"We own three of Diane's works and deeply enjoy her plein air style, brush work and use of warm colors.  Two of those works hang in my office and are frequently the topic of questions and favorable comments from clients and visitors."

Dealers Say:


 
"Diane Overmyer's landscapes capture light, color and texture with a masterful stroke of the brush. Her loose painterly style comes together from a distance and you feel like you are in the scene. Diane's paintings fit very well in the Arts & Crafts style and are enhanced by the oak frames that compliment her work perfectly."  Kathy Reddy White, Owner of Circa Arts Gallery, South Bend, Indiana

Other Artists Say:


“Diane Overmyer is an aggressive painter with a keen eye for color and composition.  I always look forward to seeing her new work”  Alan Larkin, Professor in the Fine Arts Department at Indiana University South Bend.
 
"Diane Overmyer carries on the plein air tradition of painting with confident bravura brushwork and intense saturated color. Her compositions of Midwestern themes reveals a great understanding of her time and place.  Ron Monsma, Professor in the Fine Arts Department at Indiana University South Bend.

Background:Diane's formal art education came from Indiana University South Bend.  Five years as a non-traditional student were dedicated to learning and experiencing as much as possible about anything relating to art.  She was mentored by the Fine Art Department Head, Alan Larkin.  Additionally professors Ron Monsma and Tuck Langland played a key role in Diane's development as both a painter and sculptor.  Toward the end of Diane's art education at IUSB she was finally able to take a landscape painting class which was taught by Ron Monsma.  That same summer Diane became involved with Indiana Plein Air Painters Association and took a plein-air painting workshop with Robert Eberle.  The result was a substantial change in her painting techniques.  Since that time Diane has been moving between representational and abstract painting methods.  She feels one method informs the other.In June of 2006 Diane opened Sycamore Fine Arts in the Old Bag Factory in Goshen, Indiana.  Over the course of the next 4 1/2 years Diane enjoyed developing a respected high quality art gallery, that represented over 70 artists and fine craftsmen. It was a wonderfully fulfilling experience, yet it also cut significantly into Diane's Plein-Air painting time.  So in November of 2010 Diane closed Sycamore Fine Arts so she could persue her own art on a full time basis.  New work is posted often on this site.  Check often or visit one of the galleries that carries Diane's work.Where to find Diane's work:
