In order to better support our artists, we have enlisted videographer James Dobos to shoot introductory videos which we are posting to the website to help you get better acquainted with the diverse community that makes up A Gift of Art.
Dianne was born in Bowmanville and grew up on a farm in Enniskillen surrounded by nature. She turned to art as a source of relaxation from a busy hospital career. Dianne has studied extensively with pen and ink artist Claudia Nice and watercolour artist Karen Richardson to refine and bring realism to her work. Dianne’s rural heritage which inspired a love of animals and gardening is reflected in her art, from the birds and flowers in her garden to the rustic buildings and landscapes found in the area. Dianne started teaching pen and ink classes locally in 2014 and finds the experience both rewarding and fun.
