Art snuck up on me in my 39th year of life.  It healed me after my divorce.  It welcomed me when I felt disheveled and distraught. It comforted me when I spun into chaos. It still does. It is my Heart Art. I work in acrylics, watercolor, words, doodles, photography and mixed media. The world is my studio and my heart is my canvas. My hands then become the brush.

My goal is to invite inspiration and creativity into the lives of all that I meet, in the way that speaks to their own soul.

About Diane's exhibition:
