Diane Says: "I am a painter living in West Cornwall since 1999. I studied fine art in painting/printmaking at HCHE , Hull from 1985-88 and then did a post-graduate in fine art at Cyprus College of Art 1988-89.
Paintings shown here represent time spent in landscapes over the last 4 years primarily West Penwith where I live, Ireland where I grew up and Crete where I went on holiday.
My paintings are done in oils using a rich palette of colour. I enjoy the warm sharp clear light of the Mediterranean which has a lasting evocative memory to me. After completing my postgraduate in Cyprus I pedalled home by bicycle across Europe. Crossing many high mountains particularly Delphi in Greece has left me with a strong affinity to the changing light and panorama of dramatic landscapes.
During the last year I have made work about the Cornish landscape. I have made a series of work about St Michael’s Mount which I consider to be one of the wonders of the world. More recently I have been drawn to the quieter half light of winter gently changing into the increasing brightness of spring and summer. This awe and love of space and colour drives me on to continue painting."
