About the Artist

Dianne’s faith in God is an integral part of her art and life. Painting especially is her happy place and even though at times a compulsion, expresses and gives voice to those things that give meaning to her life.
Dianne aspires to be a maker/painter of beautiful things, whether contemporary or traditional, and to create something that will be enjoyed and explored. She hopes to create works with a message of strong conviction (and sometimes just fun).
Dianne enjoy all genres – but feels she has stronger leanings towards impressionism. Her process allows the paint brush to do the talking, purely instinctive and she hopes inspired, and then many layers applied with brush, hands, cloth, really whatever works and then work back in. Palettes chosen depends on the mood of her work, but Dianne does love moody colours as in all the blues, greens, turquoise and greys.
This selection of work is a quirky, colourful take on the landscape of places seen in a different way and maybe shows a side of her origins growing up in South Africa and Zambia
