About Diane

It is all about the dress.....dress paintings, prints and custom Wedding Gown Portraits......

It has always been about the dress.  Since we were little girls we would sneak into our Mother's closet and play dress up.     We dream about the big fancy party dress, the red carpet dress, the wedding dress. Dresses are so special there have been books, plays and TV shows about the Dress.... the Wedding Dress. A few years ago I started creating dress paintings in Oil and Watercolor. The demand for those has continued and as you can see on this site and my Etsy site Limited Edition Prints of these are available. 

When our daughter got married we found the perfect dress... part tulle part feathers... she floated down the isle looking like a grown up ballerina on her wedding day.  I had been doing paintings of dresses for years, so she asked me to create a drawing in pencil of her gown.  It turned out lovely, and we decided to use it for the Thank You cards... one last look at the dress for all to see.  The friends and family who received those cards started requesting paintings of their gowns, and painting of gowns for gifts for new and old brides.  

Cara's wedding dress sketch now  hangs in her lovely home.  Because of that drawing I have added a entire new component to my dress paintings ....Custom Wedding Gown Portraits.....
