Diane is a London based artist, wife and mum of two girls. She paints bright and beautiful art inspired by a style popular in the 18th Century called Chinoiserie, pronounced ‘shin-waa-zuh-ree’. She became particularly interested in antique Chinoiserie wallpapers, for their bright bold patterns and scenic storytelling. During a trip to China she learned the unique skill of watercolour painting using natural Chinese brushes on silk paper. She pays meticulous attention to achieving beautiful blended gradients which gives her paintings a sense of depth, as well as ultra fine details using precision brushes. She collects inspiration from historical reference books, Asian art and ancient techniques, to adapt these classic designs for modern interiors.
