About Diane Cornish
Diane Cornish was born in Chicago and showed an early inclination toward art. “No surface was safe from Crayola markings,” says her website bio. Her childhood was nomadic, and she lived in Arizona, Oregon, California, Hawaii and, eventually, Colorado, which continues to be her home. Her background includes the persona of Ollie the clown, courtroom artist for the Douglas County News-Press, political cartoonist and art teacher for 28 years.
Her main emphasis is on traditional watercolor, although she enjoys working in a variety of media – she also has a passion for photography and paints from her own photographs of nature. “When I am outside with my camera, I see paintings everywhere,” she says. She is a member of the Castle Rock Art Guild. She also belongs to the Arizona Art Alliance and Casa Grande Valley Fine Arts Association and exhibits with both. Her paintings and other works belong to private collectors throughout the country.
Diane has a Bachelor of Science degree in art education and a Master’s degree in painting. She is always the eager student, willing to experiment, anxious to explore and is continuously searching for the perfect place, subject, style and the truths behind the quest.
