Artist of the Month - Dianne Ireland

This month at the Museum, we are featuring the works of Dianne Ireland on the Art Wall. Her acrylic and raw hide works range in topic from scenery to sports to dancing to portraits.

Dianne was born in Peace River and grew up on a farm east of Grimshaw. She and Jim married in 1968 and have children and grand-children to fill their lives.

Dianne has always been interested in art and drawing; she added to that passion for art in the 1970s when she first started painting with acrylic on raw hide. Since then she has taken various Bob Ross oil painting classes and more recently watercolours with Willie Wong.

Having used the mediums of oils, acrylics and watercolours, Dianne can conclusively say that working with oils are her favourites.

The Museum is open from 10 am - 5 pm, Monday through Saturday, there is no fee to view Dianne's work.
