Diane Hattula, Artist

"Because color is both powerful and manipulative, I am intrigued by the physical relationship of colors to each and the ability to arrange them in ways not normally seen in nature. By painting imaginary and sometimes abstract landscapes, I have the freedom to explore the physical properties of color."

Diane lives in Escondido, California with her husband Patrick and her two children, Jimmy and Dani Jo. A native of Michigan, Diane was trained in fine arts at Wayne State University in Detroit. Her paintings emphasize her interest in using color. She also uses her art to focus on political issues which are close to her heart. Diane believes that the world is potentially full of actual and spiritual beauty, especially if we care about our community.
