PROFESSIONAL artist Dianne Mary Alice will host her first solo exhibition at Lyme Regis Museum, opening on January 19.
Dianne came to be living by the sea in Dorset via West London and the French canals. She started taking art classes after retiring from a career in fashion, textiles and garden design and will host her first solo exhibition, ‘An Artist’s Journey’, in the Rotunda Gallery of Lyme Regis Museum from January 19 to March 6.
Dianne’s impressionistic and spontaneous approach captures images and forms from the natural world experimenting with all mediums, usually using a palette knife and just a few colours. Her inspiration comes from big skies, landscapes, plants, flowers and the sea.
Sketches and line drawings are done plein air when possible, often moving on to underpainting in acrylic and ending with oil.
She started exhibiting three years ago with Dorset Arts Weeks and belongs to Lyme Bay Arts, Artwey and Casterbridge Art societies.
