About Me

British Landscape Artist Diane Griffiths

 

From Life, Memory and Imagination...

I look for new ways to represent the familiar; using life, memory and imagination to combine identifiable elements and creative mark-making to conjure up something new. Working in a mixed media of acrylic, oil and enamel, using brushes as well as less obvious tools in order to push the boundaries of applying paint.

 

I want people to surround themselves with things that make them smile, believing that involves tapping into memorable experiences as well as discovering something new. When I paint; nothing is completely observed and nothing is completely imagined. Between the two I aim to get the sense and the detail, and between the two, I look to introduce art into people's everyday lives by creating a story out of a moment.

 

"Surround yourself with things that make you smile!"

Self-taught and hailing from the Midlands, after over a decade working in London I moved to Newquay six years ago. Working part-time as an artist I have work on display in Cornish galleries and shops, as well as online. On the committee of the Newquay Society of Artists, I’ve also contributed to two charitable projects for Cornwall Hospice and Bude Sea Pool, and successfully won and been a finalist in national and global competitions entered within the last three years.
