Diane took up art as a hobby after retirement. She has been a part of AACA from almost its inception. She loves the time members get together to learn and share ideas and stories. She enjoys graphite pencil drawing and prefers hard leads which do not mark as dark as soft leads for shading. She likes the fact that her pencil drawings are light and soft looking. Her favorite subjects are her grandchildren. She is blessed with 7 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren, and 2 more great grandchildren on the way. She also says her talent is a blessing from God and should be used for His honor and glory.
