About Dianne Kelly
Dianne Kelly is an Australian artist who excels in creating vivid, impressionist artworks using watercolour, acrylics, pastels, ink, and mixed media. Her richly imagined visual art, inspired by nature and travel, often captures the dynamic play of light and colour in a living scene. Watercolour landscapes, animals and flowers are all brought to life with contrasting, harmonious colours and bold compositions.
With an artistic career spanning more than 40 years, Dianne applies keen attention to detail and the strengths of her medium to create rich, crystal-clear vibrant colours, delicate, translucent washes and vivid scenes that burst with energy. She brings an extensive mastery of colour theory, innate sense of rhythm, and compositional elements to each painting.
Her distinctive personal style emanates joy and curiosity. She freely experiments with watercolour, acrylics, pastels, mixed media, inks, water-based oils and gouache.
In her early career, Dianne trained in commercial and fine art. Her artistic journey has taken many turns over the years, from working in advertising and design to creating original artworks and teaching others how to embrace their inner artist. Di’s fascination with texture, pattern and fashion have led her to create her own fashion label, fabrics and wallpapers.
Her artworks are included in numerous private art collections throughout Australia and the world. Several of her paintings have been published as limited edition prints. She has also produced several ranges of gift cards featuring watercolour images from her overseas travels.
