N. Diana Thorpe
Diana Thorpe’s goal is to encourage her viewers to hear the birdsong and the distant thunder; to feel the movement of the wind and the warmth of the sun; to see the clouds dance across the sky; to wonder what has caught the bird’s attention. Thorpe endeavors to capture a moment in time to be experienced whenever her work is viewed. Her paintings are created to help others see things around them that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Drawing and painting have been lifelong interests of Thorpe. She began sketching at the age of seven before taking up painting at the age of 14. In college, she took a number of art-related courses covering a variety of drawing and painting styles. After college, she studied with a number of professional artists to further hone and polish her skills.
Moved by the beauty of the world around her, Thorpe is naturally drawn to the representational painting style. She enjoys painting a variety of subjects, but she is especially inspired by color and movement.
In addition to creating works of art in acrylic, watercolor, and oil, Thorpe also produces greeting cards and prints depicting her vibrant style.
Since relocating from Richmond in 2009, Thorpe has resided in Charlotte County with her husband, Dr. Curtis W. Thorpe.
