Ancient Christian imagery, illuminated manuscripts and icons have influenced Dianne’s painting practice for many years. She interprets these in a contemporary and narrative style. These influences form the basis for her detailed, stylized images.
Her artworks are included in numerous private and corporate collections worldwide. These include her most recent commission, the Scriptural Stations of the Cross, in Sacred Heart Church, Samford. Her paintings also form part of the Australian Catholic University private art collection.
Dianne offers mixed media workshops for adults in her Cashmere studio.
Mediums and/or surfaces used?
Dianne works in acrylic, 18-karate gold leaf and mixed media on wooden panels. She employs various tactile techniques such as glazing and collage. Her delicately coloured work is filled with symbolism, calligraphic text and areas of layered patterns.
