Diana Constable, Lake County Impressionist.

Personal Statement
I think of myself as more of a colorist using bold colors like the French Fauvist painters of the early 20th century. I do not draw the image first, but simply start my paintings with blocks of underpainting and rough images on canvas. I love colorful subjects and am known for my vivid roosters, egrets, and grape paintings.

Artist Biography
Diana was born in Illinois and lived in Texas, Marin and Sonoma Counties in California, and traveled the world before moving up to Lake County seven years ago. She devotes her energy to painting, playing on the Lake, her furried friends, and teaching painting.

She majored in Art at the University of Illinois and Texas Woman's University. When she moved to California in 1980, she continued her painting education at the College of Marin, and studied under several well-known artists in the Sonoma-Marin area. During this time, she was privileged in attending painting workshops in Southern France, Mexico and the Italian Riviera.

Her work has been shown throughout California: at the Marin Arts Council, the Artist's Collective Gallery in Santa Rosa, the Sonoma County Fair, Art Heaven in Sebastopol, Main Street Gallery in Lakeport, Saw Shop Gallery #& Bistro in Kelseyville and The Wine Studio in Upper Lake. She currently holds artist workshops in her home studio.
