Artists statement by Diana "I love everything about the process of creating a painting, from the original idea, to the set up or scene captured, to the actual drawing and painting of the piece, that is what drives me to my studio to paint every day. My goal is to perfect and hone my skills and to enjoy the process which enriches my life..
For my still lifes I am always looking for new and different set-ups, lighting effects, interesting and sometimes unusual objects to depict. I also like to paint in series, which are similar in theme or format.
I am thrilled by the hunt for interesting objects to paint and can be found often at auctions and charity shops hunting for treasures.
I also love to let loose with the palette knife to create more impressionistic and textured work, branching out into some abstract work too. Although my main body of work has been focused on traditional still lifes recently, I also love to paint other subjects such as landscapes and seascapes, and also painted an equine series for the Dublin Horse Show"
