About Me

Hi, my name is Diane. I am a visual artist who works in watercolour, gouache, pastel and oil. I am also a qualified teacher, and I teach watercolour and drawing to small groups of students, so everyone gets the attention they need to progress. I conduct these sessions in my private studio/gallery, “Now and Then Fine Art”. It is light, airy, quiet and private, and has a lovely area for students’ afternoon tea by the garden and pool. Parking is right outside the studio and is free and easy to access.

I have been an artist all of my life, and have developed a distinctive, contemporary style in painting and drawing:

  • Figures
  • Portraits
  • Animals
  • Landscapes
  • Still Life
  • Abstract

I consider myself fortunate to be able to work as an artist, and have undertaken many courses and workshops to become more skilled in my artwork.

I exhibit and sell my work through:

  • Commission (private and corporate)
  • My studio gallery, “Now and Then Fine Art Gallery”
  • Major art shows
