Dianna is an extremely proficient pastel artist and a much sought after international instructor in the medium.
Created via a variety of mediums, this fondness for our heritage is evident in much of her work. In an image of a derelict automobile, children in a washtub or flowers in an antique vase one can sense her invitation to close our eyes, smile and remember when....
It was her love of Canadiana that resulted in an exciting invitation to display her works for the Queen and visiting heads of state during the 1987 Commonwealth Conference.
Dianna was born, Diane Lloynd, sometime over 60 years ago in the small Alberta mining town of Coleman. Her earliest memories however, are of the fields, flowers, schools and friends in North Battleford, Saskatchewan.
These childhood memories of life on the Canadian Prairies are interwoven with the present to inspire work that is timeless and renowned for the realism and detail used in expressing it. Dianna creates in many mediums though she is best known as both a Premier and Master Pastelllist of Canada.
