When asked to describe what drives her love of painting, Diane says, ” I envision a painting in almost everything I see.  Adding drama and mystery through the use of powerful lighting effects, reflected surfaces, exaggerated contrasts and unusual compositions, my goal is to transform simple everyday life into un-ordinary, not-so-still life.  I like to take an ordinary subject and enhance the perception of it, invite the viewer to take a closer look.  If you look closer, experience something in a different light, you may discover something new about yourself.  I love how the medium takes command of the artist.  The artist starts the process, but the paint takes charge and leads the work to a sometimes unintended outcome.  It’s always exhilarating.”

The meeting starts at 7PM. Come early for a good seat and lots of inspiration from this artist’s beautiful work!
