Diana de Gruyther

Finding a connection to the landscape, cultural traditions, music and exploring ways to interpret the emotional response, creating an image that has an energy of its own.  A visual ‘exaggeration’ of everyday scenes but viewed in a different setting, becoming a part of that space. A lifelong traveller and painter Diana now lives in Dumfries and Galloway, with it’s gentle landscape of rivers and rolling terrain, the highlands and islands also offers a wealth of great subjects. Her studio is part of an old cottage  tucked away in a field.
