Born in 1942 and raised in Williamstown, Victoria, Diane started her career as a secondary teacher.

Through sales of paintings, Diane now has works hanging in the United Kingdom, USA, Canada and Norway. One of Diane's more unusual commissions was to produce the sketches for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Equestrian program. Her awards incude the prestigious McCubbin Art Award.
Diane is fascinated by the appearance and wonder of all living things. She loves painting like life itself and hopes this shows in her art.
