It is only with the heart that one can see rightly;
what is essential is invisible to the eye.  —Antoine de St. Exupery

My paintings are inspired by  life and my practice to embody love in each moment to the best of my ability. Each painting is an exploration of both the inner and outer world, and how we navigate between listening inwardly, while engaging in the world.

My work is inspired by many sources - the bold and bright colors of India and Latin America, the ephemeral flowers of spring and summer, a song or a tree in a field. Alongside these inspirations are the master painters who ignite my soul - Van Gogh, Klimt, Diebenkorn, Matisse, Monet, Picasso to name just a few of my favorites.

I try to keep my eyes open to see where the magic will come from each day.

Thanks for visiting. My work is for sale, so drop me a note if you're interested in a particular painting. xo Diane
