Here's an opportunity to develop/practice or offer hands-on drawing, sketching, illustration, observational and painting skills in a supportive, knowledgeable setting. With over fifty years of practical experience in the art world Dianne has learned, taught and practiced art in many non-digital forms and mediums. Specifically Dianne is an accomplished and lauded watercolourist with similar success as an acrylic painter. "For twelve seasons I facilitated watercolour workshops at Hollyhock, the renowned west coast retreat centre, and more recently shared my painting expertise at various locations throughout BC with a focus on the Okanagan. Now I prefer one-on-one mentorships and teaching situations, from brief 1/2 hour critiques to longer engagements based on client need and preference." Rates are by the hour or half hour. Commissions also considered. Examples of my work below.
