Diane Huson - Oil Painting  February 14th 2018 Diane Huson was born in British Columbia, Canada and completed her Fine Arts Diploma from Malaspina College on Vancouver Island. Originally an oil painter, she expanded her expertise into watercolour after moving to Toronto in the mid 1980’s. People and animals were her favorite subjects. Her work as a florist and her love of gardening encouraged her to paint florals and nature. In 2007, Diane decided to paint in oil again. Studies of dramatic shadows and lighting on large canvas are her key focus. Winning the People’s Choice Award for her oil painting “Bronzed Dahlia” in the Oshawa Art Association’s Juried art Show in 2011, Second best in oils for her portrait “McKayla” in 2012 , People’s Choice Award for “McKayla: Memories of Summer” in 2015 , The Mayor’s Choice Award for “Abigail” in 2016 and most recently an Award of Excellence for ‘Standing Proud ‘ at the PRAC juried art show in 2017 were definite highlights. Throughout her career, Diane has been commissioned to paint portraits, animals, landscapes, architectural buildings, florals and book illustrations. Her work has been displayed on numerous book covers with a distribution of 200,000. Her prints and paintings hang in numerous private and corporate collections worldwide. Diane currently works from her home studio in Whitby, where she and her husband have resided for 30 years.
