Rainy Day

Diane has a degree in Art from Graceland University, Lamoni, Iowa and an MFA from
the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University in Boston, Massachusetts. After 38 years
of teaching in the public schools, she "retired" to focus on her own work. She still
adjuncts at Iowa Central Community College and teaches a variety of workshops
focusing on 2D media. Diane’s work has been featured in many juried and one person
shows around the Midwest. The subject matter of her oil paintings and pastels is usually
pulled from nature and often examines the subtle nuances a busy society might typically
miss – how water flows over and between river rocks or beads up on the leaf of a lily pad.
