Dianna Poindexter has always been a realist painter. From the time she created her first painting, her natural response has been to interpet the subjects form, shape and color into recognizable imagery rather than an abstractions. Originally from Scottsdale Arizona, Poindexter knew she was an artist from an early age. Her creative process began in childhood, developed in high school, and matured at Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, PA where she earned a B.A. in Fine Arts.
