My name is Dianne Altmann I am 74 years young.
My passion for art intensified with my career in the building industry
over a period of 30 years.
Designing new homes and display villages where I developed unique
skills in perspective, orientation to the light source and composition.
Constantly pushing the boundaries with colours ,textures and
modern trends .
Throughout my life I have done several Tafe courses in design and
concept plans. I have also attended several workshops in Water
colour and most of my early works are in that medium. I became
completely obsessed with trying new mediums. In the last 3 years I
have been experimenting with large acrylic paintings and love the
results with a palette knife. I enjoy professional lessons in several
mediums plus group painting sessions and meeting with fellow
painters regularly in small groups.
On this creative journey I have become bolder with each painting
and I am loving where the journey is taking me. Through art I let my
creative juices flow. I have discovered the translucent use of water
colour in nature, flowers and delicate animals and birds. The
accuracy of gauge in children, objects and buildings plus the freedom
of acrylic in large abstract paintings. I am sure the time has come to
be even more daring and let my creative juices flow onto the paper.
