Diane Watson is a storyteller who uses pictures rather than words. Growing up in rural New Hampshire, there was always an abundance of natural material for pictures, in the form of people, animals, and the surrounding landscape. Diane’s paintings are the stories of these characterizations, both animate and inanimate. Water, rocks, and bones each have their own visual story to tell.
Diane's formal art education includes a BFA from Boston University, an MLS from the University of Denver, study, travel, and always, observation. Years of experience as a painter primarily in egg tempera, extensive studies in art history, and as an art educator provide a foundation for the telling of these stories of seasons, floods, fires, and juxtapositions of bone, shell, and decorative objects.
