Searching for the Intangible

Diana uses colour and texture to capture emotional experiences. Expressive marks,paint and collage direct her multi-sensory memories.

“I rarely know what my paintings are about until they are complete.”

Diana’sbold engagement with various materials reflects her character and search for the “intangible”.

An artist’s daughter, Diana has lived and sketched in the Welsh hills for twenty-seven years. Purely abstract paintings have developed into semi-abstract landscapes, encouraging her to play between the boundaries of pure representation and pure abstraction.

2010: First Class Honours Degree in Fine Art.
2014: Masters in Art Practice -Glyndwr University.
