Diane Summer

Montville based artist, Diane Summer has always been an artist, but had to let go of the anchor of her professional life in medicine and as a relationship therapist to further explore her creativity. She has spent a huge number of hours studying paintings in galleries around the world and particularly in Italy.

“Serendipitously i find a stillness sitting quietly taking time to fully observe. The ‘life’ is in the sensual treats that surround; of the seasonal ripe fruit and the beauty of crafted objects. And then dipping brushes into the buttery richness of oil paint.”

Diane deeply cares about the quality of her work. She seeks tutors and accesses specialist books as she encounters challenges in her work. Her canvases are stretched over seasoned wood by a local artisan who also frames her work. She varnishes her work after an extensive drying period.
