Diane's work is created in a combination of acrylics and enamels which allows her to play about creatively with tones and textures using enamels but also capture the detail of the scene with the flexibility of acrylics. She is heavily influenced by impressionism and post-impressionism. She enjoys playing with colour, light and texture and aims to inject an emotive and almost allusive air to her landscapes.
"Inspired by the beauty the Cornish countryside I take pride in my work and strive to discover something new in every painting. I look for new ways to represent familiar landscapes and let you bring cherished memories into your home. My work is created in a combination of acrylics, oils and enamels; I aim to inject an emotive and almost allusive air to my landscapes – we’re not just recognising the landscape but recognising an emotion that the landscape evokes. I’ve only recently moved to Newquay and I’m excited to be near the beach, breathe fresh sea air and take long coastal walks. To finally live where I choose to holiday every year, with inspiration on my doorstep. I’ve never wanted to do anything else. It’s what makes me tick."
