Dianne has an extensive past in the arts and has been painting and drawing as long as she can remember, her work is reflective to her indigenous cultural background and is very spiritual . It is important for me to always remember where I came from ,the gifts of teaching from my Elders and those who have supported me ,
Dianne paints from her inner spirit and tries to convey her visions and interpretations on canvas to share with others. Dianne’s bold palette and colour selection is intentional and reflective to the images she has in her mind. “
“I love to reflect on a piece , and sharing it with people allows me to take them on a that journey from the moment an image is born in my mind to its completion. to experience that environment, that special place, that thought that first captured my imagination.
To relive that experience and share the euphoric state of mind the image in stills.
“I always remember where I come from ,the gifts I’ve received , the Elders and community in my life”
