Landscapes, Animals and Flowers

Landscapes, Animals and Flowers

My name is Diane Bell, I grew up in Western Massachusetts and now live in South Florida with my husband and pet bunnies.

Art has truly helped me grow as a person. In high schooI, I struggled through math, I wasn't athletic or a social butterfly. It was only in art class that I felt "I belonged".

After high school, I went on to take several art courses at Framingham State College in the evening after work. At the time, I was a hairdresser and standing on my feet all day. The fact that I was ready, willing and able to lug my art supplies through the college campus (after being on my feet all day) and then stand behind an easel for hours, made me realize how important art was.

Many years have passed since then, but art continues to be a huge part of my life. Through the years, I've learned that rendering animals and nature in pencil, watercolor and acrylics was my passion. I now focus on my love for animals, flowers and landscapes in my art work. I am still learning everything I can about my chosen niche through books, classes and online videos. My passion continues to grow.
