The Artist Says:

" Art is a lifetime pursuit" ,  the constant drive to create is the motivation to improve, study and even teach so that the
                 artist can spread his love for his process while giving back through his works, the visions only he
                  is captivated with.  The two dimensional surface which he uses to make the eye see in three dimensions
                  is his playground for the exploration of color, texture, form, balance, line, and contrast.  Complete control
                   and decision making are his tools while enthusiasm powers each stroke of the brush. 

Collectors Say:

The painting  of the street lady has captured my attention after meeting this lady at the Studio's at Nob Hill.  I am so glad I have it. Marta Light
The Malaya painting I bought was one out of all the paintings in the Gallery that captured my eye and I will always treasure it...Donna Clark

Dealers Say:

The artist's of The ABQ Gallery really admired Diane's art, her friendliness, and her fun nature. We hate to see her move to Chama, but
                we know the community will enjoy and benefit from all her contributions.  
Johnson's of Madrid wishes all the art sold as quickly as Diane's art sold during a time of few sales !
