Diane is a Canadian traveler who has spent a great deal of time in New England and America painting the sights. She practices plein air (outdoor) painting and is no stranger to the annual plein air painting event we host every summer. Diane's education includes Ecole Louis Riel, St. Boniface, Manitoba, Canada RN from St. Boniface Hospital Three Schools of Art in Toronto, Canada, Bachelor Fine Arts from Herts College of Art and Design in St. Albans, England (now Hertfordshire University), and her list of accolades is extensive.
Our favorite things about Diane's paintings are the way she captures the natural lighting that is so important to creating an atmosphere in the painting. Her brushstrokes remind us of impressionists, the masters of capturing light. We love Diane's ability to capture the simplistic beauty of New England. So much of being a New Englander is appreciating the beauty of the everyday around us!
