Diane Huson

Diane E. Huson My love of flowers and nature are reflected in my highly detailed, representational watercolours and oils. I am drawn to dramatic shadows and lighting to bring impact to my work. As an avid photographer, I take many of my own photos and incorporate the subject matter into my paintings. Diane Huson was born in British Columbia, Canada, and completed her Fine Arts Diploma from Malaspina College on Vancouver Island. Originally an oil painter, she expanded her expertise into watercolour after she moved to Toronto in the mid 1980’s. People and animals were her favorite subjects. Her work as a florist, and her love of gardening encouraged her to begin painting florals and nature. In 2007, Diane decided to paint in oil again. Studies of dramatic shadows and lighting on large canvas are her key focus. Winning the “People’s Choice Award” for her oil painting “Bronzed Dahlia” in the Oshawa Art Association’s Juried art Show in June, 2011 and “Second best in oils” for her portrait “McKayla” in 2012 were definite highlights. Diane has been commissioned over the years to paint portraits, animals, landscapes, architectural buildings, florals and book illustrations. Her work has been displayed on two book covers with a distribution of 200,000 copies. Her prints and paintings have hung in such places as Rideau Hall in Ottawa , Hospices across Canada, as well as numerous personal collections in Canada, the U.S., England and The Netherlands. Locally, Diane’s watercolours have won awards in 2001, 2003, 2011, and 2012 through the Oshawa Art Association juried shows. Diane currently lives with her husband in Whitby, Ontario where they have resided for 25 years. Having recently become a grandmother for the second time, she has a new subject matter to explore!
