Diane resides in Darien with her family and has developed her love for creating artistic paintings through her studies at DePaul University. During her studies at DePaul she enriched her education and artistic compassion through the philosophical writings of Leo Tolstoy and other known philosophers. In addition her love of art developed as she studied the works of the Masters; Brancusi, Cézanne, and Monet. Diane finds that combining the skill of photography and her love of painting helps her to create visually pleasing compositions on canvas. Driving herself to accomplish greater realism in her painting is one of her true joys. Diane has exhibited her works and is a commissioned artist.
