Diana Robinson’s journey began after finding a large box of oil paints, brushes and canvases at an estate sale. She dabbled in basic drawing and painting classes with local teachers once a week, and then followed the path of many hours of self-practice and daily painting leading to workshops and learning from the masters.
I wonder why people get that feeling of intimidation when walking into art
galleries. Often questioning if they know enough about art. The truth is, it’s
that viewer who gets to empower art by deciding if the artwork will be
given a life outside the gallery! I hope you will find the peace in my art that
will empower you and in turn, will provide you a lifetime of joy.
