Diane  Jansen profile picture

I have spent most of my life raising a family and working in the field of accounting and management.  When time permitted, I dabbled in various art forms such as wheel thrown pottery, drawing, sewing, stitchery and other arts and crafts.  I took art classes where and when I could.

After retirement I began painting with watercolors, studying with Mary Tomaskevitch, Helen Shafer Garcia, and Rich Stergulz and taking various workshops with other artists.  After a time I began painting with oils and found the depth of depth of color and freedom of expression oils allow to be enticing.  I would call my works impressionistic representations of ordinary subjects and I hope that the viewer can find a story within my paintings, though it may not be the same story that I see.  I draw inspiration from many things, but it is the light within a scene that captures my imagination.
