Diana produces collographs, linocuts and monoprints as well as mixed media paintings and stained glass panels. Her inspiration is rooted in nature and the landscape. The immediate environment has the most influence on her work whether it be the local Surrey Hills or the more exotic Far East where she travelled for three months in 2014 - she is interested in conveying the essence of a place. Diana's prints - particularly the recent linocuts have a strong sense of rhythm and stylised design reflecting the myriad patterns that form on the fields from centuries of grazing, ploughing and working the land. She loves the difference that the changing seasons bring to the land and particularly likes early spring when the colours are at their freshest and you can still see the structure of the landscape.
Diana has been a long standing member of the Greenwich Printmakers cooperative who have their own artist run gallery in Greenwich and are celebrating their 40th year this year. She was delighted to have a solo exhibition at the Watts Contemporary Gallery in 2018. She also exhibits regularly at the Battersea Affordable Art Fair. She has taken part in the Surrey Artists Open Studios scheme every year since it started, and was shortlisted for Surrey Artist of the Year in 2015.
Diana is based in Dorking.
