More about Dianne

Welcome and thanks for taking the time to visit my site, in our busy technology driven lives it is so important to take time to look at and surround ourselves with things we find beautiful, things we enjoy and art pieces we love to look at daily. I hope that within my site you find beauty, truth and inspiration, but most of all I hope you find a piece of art which makes you feel good, feel joy and that you want to keep looking at, whether it be revisiting my site, or buying an original piece.

A little more about me.

I live in the North East of England, close to the picturesque North Yorkshire Moors and works from my studio in Middlesbrough as part of the Gilkes Street artists studio group.


Education/artists training

My work is driven by the desire to create work which pushes the boundaries of my own art practice, to constantly strive to make innovative work, but also from the desire to create work which the public appreciate and pieces which people who have never before considered buying a piece of original art would love to own, to enjoy and love, or just to keep looking at and feel inspired by.

Since completing my arts education, gaining both a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art and a Masters Degree in Fine art, I have exhibited both nationally and locally. including solo exhibitions and group shows, both commercial and gallery settings, also many commercial and private commissions. Including a commission for Director and Screen Writer Joss Whedon, this came about as part of my last Kickstarter Exhibition Project.

Exploring both figurative ideas and 'the surface, through various mediums, using both representational and abstract art. Throughout my career my art practice has explored many media, always with a foundation in observation, drawing and mark making, my practice has explored painting, inked work, sculpture, installation and site specific work.
