Diane Boone

The art I create is a personal search for “buried treasure.” Richly detailed, darkly evocative creations that spring from spontaneity and rigor, refinement and rebellion, high and low.

 

An established artist, a world traveler and entrepreneur, I find great joy in the seduction of color and texture. Organic, curvy or linear, blended with memories and soul. My eye is caught by the inherent beauty of nature – that is the grounding element.

 

My approach is not particularly intellectual or steeped in formal training. I am not restrained or analytical. Instead I prefer my mind to channel naturally and creatively, often without a pre-planned agenda. Painting is a platform where emotion, color and memories are planted, nurtured and harvested.

 

A pivotal learning moment for me came through a workshop taught by Sarah Oblinger of Paint or Die Studio. She taught me to paint without fear of critique or judgement. We created freely from very personal memories, dreams and intuition – there was no right or wrong. It is a gift to feel this untethered.

 

I reside and create at studios in Venice, Florida and Kansas City.
