As an artist I discover and experience with every painting I create. I also love talking to other artists; finding out about their life, art – hopes, dreams and fears! It’s very re-affirming to know that other artists go through the same things I do, and how they deal with both the ups and the downs. The art journey is a process of learning and experimenting, networking and developing.

Shannon Pepin

We bought two of Diane’s paintings off EBay and loves them so much we commissioned a large piece for our anniversary. To say we are delighted is an understatement. Her communication throughout the process was excellent and she showed us her preliminary design and was open to any changes we wanted (there weren’t any!) We asked her to include our family in the piece and specified some other details and every one was executed beautifully. The finished painting is absolutely gorgeous.

Truly happy, it will be well loved and admired by many.

Dee Edwards

Very positive experience, I commissioned a painting of a Nth Cornwall view that’s a favourite place. Painting is gorgeous, catching the real essence of the clouds & light you see there. Great use of colour, a very atmospheric painting. It arrived beautifully packed. I will be commissioning more pictures of my Cornish homeland as they cheer up a very wet & miserable winter! Thank you for great service, Diane.

Patrica Puxty

Diane created the most beautiful painting for us. It looks amazing on our lounge wall. Everytime i look at it it makes smile. A very talented young lady.
