SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER SPOTLIGHT ARTISTS:
The Member Spotlight is on Diane Pearson through November 8. Join Diane for an artist reception on Thursday, October 29 from 6 - 8 PM.
Diane Pearson is a botanical artist who loves to combine science and nature with art. Her watercolor paintings are done using the traditional English botanical technique. Applying layers of transparent washes with a very small brush and then moving into a dry brush technique while continuing to build up color and form.
Diane graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Interior Design, and uses the same elements and principles of design that she used in her career of many years as a residential Interior Designer.
Diane says of her work "I am inspired by our changing seasons, blooming gardens, the farmers market, the sun rising and setting over lake Minnetonka, my art sketchbooks and journals. I don’t need to go very far to find inspiration. It’s in my backyard."
"One of the greatest joys I have experienced as an artist is when someone views my art and I see that they “connect” with it."
