Welcome to the
With a love of animals and nature as her artistic inspiration, Diane L. Johnson captures the true essence of animals on paper using her painstakingly detailed style of watercolor. Four-legged, winged, finned, scaly, gargantuan or palm sized – she places no limits on what type of creatures she captures on canvas. “I’ve been drawing since I can remember,” said Diane, a self-taught portrait artist, whose early training and mainstay was graphic arts, a talent with which she still earns a living. But it wasn’t until 1995 that she created her first animal portrait.
