"Most of my work begins en plein air so that I can express nature's grand beauty first hand as an Expressive Realist. All my life I have been in awe of the world around me. To be able to create interpretations of those ethereal moments, I pursue the interaction of light, atmosphere and color with form. Some things that inspire me include the movement of water, quality of light, subtle color illuminations and the character of the landscape. In my work, I strive to recreate in paint that something special which drew me to want to paint my subject in the first place."

She taught drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery, stained glass, and AP Studio Art to high school students in Maine for over 21 years. Retired from teaching, Dianna devotes all her time to painting and exhibiting. She primarily paints with oils creating land and seascapes, still life and flowers.

She has studied with master artists in Maine, New Hampshire, Florida, and abroad. Dianna is a member of the American Women Artists, Oil Painters of America, the American Artists Professional League and the American Society of Marine Artists.
It’s as tricky to define how or why one makes art as it is to define why one buys art. It’s a visceral thing from the artist's choice of subject, medium, color palette and the feeling of the painting. Why does a painting stop you as you walk through a gallery or browse online? Dianna hopes her paintings will attract you in this way.
