Diane is so looking forward to September, when she gets to hop a flight to Australia for a series of workshops in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Pleasure Coast, Darwin, Melbourne and Adelaide! Please contact Diane directly if you are interested in one of these workshops.
RECENT EVENTS: Diane had the honor of serving as a juror for both the 2017 IAPS Biennial "Pastelworld" International Open Juried exhibition and the Connecticut Pastel Society's "Purely Pastel" exhibition. On April 1, Diane offered a demo and mini-workshop at the Pastel Society of the South West in Grapevine, TX. In October, Diane's work was selected for the Canson Excellence in the Arts Award at the 2016 Pastel Society of America's "Enduring Brilliance" exhibition at the National Arts Club in New York City. Diane was honored and humbled to have her work "Ashley" selected as "Best in Show" by juror Kim Casebeer at the Pastel Society of Colorado's 12th Annual International Mile High Exhibition last summer.
