Diane Whalley Artist Bio:
'I see. I dream. I interpret and then I paint!'.... I have always had an interest in art and chose to study graphic design loving the strong forms and bold colours often represented by the discipline. After graduating I spent a few years working in public relations, but was drawn back to my first love of art and design preferring visual communication over words. For over ten years I have created colourful and quirky textile and mixed media pictures. But more recently I began to paint, experimenting with varying styles and textures. My paintings are nearly always colourful and often bold interpretations of all the things I see around me from serene seascapes to naïve still life. Since moving to Cornwall in 2004 I have been greatly influenced by my coastal surroundings. Many of the pictures have a tendency towards abstract with layering of colours to create a depth and richness, and simple forms that appear to float as a boat on the water, seagulls in the air or seedlings in the wind. I like the idea of stretching the imagination. My pictures have often been described as 'happy' and have gone to private collections in Paris, Dublin, Edinburgh, Australia and throughout England.
