Welcome to my website. Watercolors are my passion, and now that spring has finally arrived here in Vermont, I feel renewed as plein-air painting is my favorite. I also work from my own digital pictures.
It’s all about the process, not the results. For me, it’s about staying in the moment and I try to do that with every painting. I enjoy using strong color and strive to capture the light, while celebrating the happy accidents. This process is what gets me up in the morning and keeps the creative juices flowing all day long. My paintings are an interpretation of the places I visit and the vistas I capture around my home, garden and beyond.
I earned an art degree from Iowa State University and have taken many watercolor workshops from well-known and not-so-well-known watercolorists over the years. I feel my work is still evolving and I find the journey totally fulfilling.
My art affiliations include: a signature membership in the Vermont Watercolor Society and I hold a board position; the Southern Vermont Arts Center; and the Valley Arts Foundation. My work has been widely exhibited in the state and beyond. My paintings have been purchased by collectors in New England, the Midwest and the far west.
Diane’s Watercolor Gallery is OPEN June through mid-October at my home (11 Maple Hill Road, Weston; 1 mile north of the village on Route 100). Turn at the red and blue birdhouse and follow the sign to the gallery.
