Hello…I’m Diane. I was born right here in SAN DIEGO county and grew up watching my mother paint Native American portraits and beautiful landscapes! I was surrounded by canvassed faces and the exquisite landscapes of Arizona, Utah, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. From an early age, I remember my mother’s artwork, her tubes of paint, brushes, and easels scattered about our den. I would quietly enter the room when she wasn’t there and wonder if I’d ever be able to paint and draw like her. Eventually, I did excel in art using that inherited NATURAL attention to detail, just like my Mom! And THAT is what I bring to my Caricatures! I’m not merely a quickly trained cartoonist, I’m an ARTIST.
