Adventure has been Diane’s passion. She has lived in a log cabin on Orcas Island, sailed across the Pacific, had a farm in Tenino, and currently lives an artist’s life on Whidbey Island. Her drive to create throughout the years has reflected this sense of adventure. Diane’s favorite mode has been painting--in oils , watercolor, and acrylics as well as carving and printing linocuts. It was when she discovered monotypes, the bridge between painting and printmaking, that she found her niche. She still creates linocuts and paintings, but her first love is working on monotypes and the myriad possibilities.
