Diana working on a textured landscape.
I work in many mediums including wood, paper, acrylic and oil. My subject is usually representational. I have a love of people and how life’s events contribute to their molding and how all nature is in harmony with us. My heart’s desire is to share this love with you. It is ultimately inspired by my love of God who enhances this appreciation and love.
In preparation, I graduated from Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo with an Art Major and obtained a Standard Designated Teaching Credential in Art. I have had other extensive art studies, including recent studies in La Romita School of Art in Terni, Italy in 2018.
I realized that entering competitions, displaying work, participating in the Art in the Communities programs, are all ways to get established. I have shown my work, for example, from 2015 to 2018 in over 50 art competitions, often winning ribbons, including three Best of Show Awards. One of the competitions was showcased at the Haggin Museum in Stockton, CA.
You and I can see that mixing with other artists and working toward certification in artist standing would be beneficial for anyone who loves what they do. With this goal in mind, I joined Sacramento Fine Arts Center, Northern California Arts, Blue Line Arts in Roseville, CA, Alliance of Women Artists, and National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society of America. I have served on the Board of Directors for Northern California Arts for the last three years, and was President in 2017 of that organization. I am happy to say that I have obtained the highest level of certification, Master Painter in 2017 with Northern California Arts. Currently working on producing art training video(s) and educational book in 2019 covering Impasto history, tools, and application techniques.
