Introducing the Elles Jubilation Series #2:
Diane Stone, the granddaughter of California Plein Air Painter Albert Mugleston, resides in a seaside coastal town in California, but has traveled far and lived in foreign lands. She has studied with contemporary masters Gerald F. Brommer, Pierre-Louis Charpentier, Charles Movalli, Dan Peterson, Charles Reid, Edward Norton Ward, Alexander Zimin (St. Petersburg, Russsia), Stephane Ruais (Provence, France) and Mary Whyte (Charleston, So. Carolina), and painted with other artists at The Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris, France.
Diane is a member of Art Leagues & Associations, and has served on the Board of Directors for the Museums of Art. Diane has taken part in both one-woman shows and group exhibitions. Her award-winning works are represented in galleries and have been displayed in private collections and professional offices across the country, as well as at the U.S. Embassy in Paris, France and the number one Art Gallery in Tahiti, Gallerie Winkler.
Inspired by the picturesque surroundings of America, France and other foreign lands, Diane explores rich colors, textures and subtleties of form in both watercolors and oils. Intuitive, fresh and appealing, her work ranges from the casual indifference of chickens and roosters to the elaborate intricacies of lace.
