DIANE C FERGUSON
Diane is a Fine Artist that specialises in Portraiture and Equine Art. Upon leaving school she studied for a Diploma in Art before taking up a career in Nursing. In 2013 Diane made the decision to leave the nursing world behind and follow her dream to paint full time. She now regularly undertakes commissions in Oil, Pastel and Watercolour. Diane enjoys creating pieces purely for her own pleasure and Artistic growth. She exhibits throughout Shropshire and has recently taken part in the 2014 Shrewsbury Open Studios Art Trail.
When painting, Diane is motivated and excited by the light and shade, the intensity of colours and the emotion of the subject. A tiny change to an eye or mouth can affect the whole mood of a piece. A recent painting, The Rope Swing, is a portrait of her daughter Evie. Diane wanted to portray to others the contentment and calm that she sees within her.
