DIANE MCDONALD

Contemporary Artist

About the Artist

Australian Artist I was born and raised in Perth, but have also lived in Albany and Bunbury, in the south-west of WA. Home has been in various suburbs in and around Brisbane for close to 30 years. I have enjoyed a life-long love affair with art and am thrilled to be able to follow my passion and create on a full-time basis.

My creativity is explored through a variety of different media but I always return to my favourite - acrylics.

Inspiration for Art

My inspiration comes from natural surrounds, colour, form and life itself. My works often reflect many of my favourite places and people I have observed there.

I love using colour, in sometimes non-traditional ways and feel it reflects a warmth and happiness to my artworks.

I am a full-time Artist, exhibit regularly and accept commissions.

Education

"I recently made my first major acquisition of art from Diane. It was such a wonderful experience - apart from the fact I love 'Warm Reflection' - dealing with Diane was an absolute pleasure. ... She was very patient and helpful and gave me some great advice on selecting and hanging this gorgeous piece. I would highly recommend Diane and her beautiful art."

"I recently made my first major acquisition of art from Diane McDonald. It was such a wonderful experience - apart from the fact I love 'Warm Reflection' - dealing with Diane was an absolute pleasure. She is such a positive person and a very talented artist. She was very patient and helpful and gave me some great advice on selecting and hanging this gorgeous piece. I would highly recommend Diane and her beautiful art.
Kind regards
