Artist Statement

Nobody is really ready to Retire! Although, I've always enjoyed making art, I have had many roles in my life so far- student, teacher, mother, wife, farmer, and now painter! I paint what I want and where ever my brush takes me! I usually paint in acrylics and oils. I like mark making, textures and patches of colours. This last year I have been evolving into abstraction. As I have gradually changed from a Career-controlled pace of life to a life with a pace that I can control, I have spent more time just enjoying my experiences with my own art making. I have explored and played with different mediums and various techniques. Self-directed creativity isn’t easy! Everyday in my studio presents new challenges that move me forward on my way to a new learning Journey that has no boundaries! The support of family, friends and other artists have helped me through the joys and inevitable challenges of creating my art work. I belong to and volunteer at an Artist Guild. I visit art galleries and research artists and their works on line. I take courses both online and life. I am passionate about Learning to make my Art. I am not retired, I am Retreaded and continually learning about making my art as wonderful as I can! Sincerely, Diane Akey
