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.

I was bought a painting of one of my favourite album covers as a gift for my Birthday. It now hangs pride of place in my office! I had to come on here and compliment the artist Diane Griffiths for her talents and and eye for detail. I’m certainly going to look out for other upcoming works from Diane, out of general intrigue and if I need to give a gift or possibly treat myself in future.

Purchased a stunning piece of work from Diane. The photograph really didn’t do the piece justice. The piece was purchased as a present for a friend and Diane ensured it reached me in time to be presented. My friend was blown away with the piece and it is now in a prime position in his home. Many thanks.

Beautiful picture from a very talented artist who has managed to capture the essence of a place so special to us. Every time you look at the painting, you notice something new. Painting arrived very quickly and was perfectly wrapped for transit.

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.

The Stork

Ed Jones

Thank you Diane for sending me the original painting of “The Stork” received today well packaged and in perfect condition. This is a brilliant piece of artwork and exactly what I have been looking for to go in to my office/studio as it matches the yellow and blue theme. Truly happy, it will be well loved and admired by many. Additional thanks for sending me the original artworks ‘Sunshine over Bedruthan steps’ and ‘King Arthur’. Words cannot describe how fantastic these paintings are; King Arthur has a sparkle that can only be seen in person, such a privilege. Sunshine over Bedruthan steps is bright, bold, colourful and so intricate in the detail, as soon as I saw this painting on your website, I knew that I had to see it for real.

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.

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.
