Diane Whalley

Diane Whalley is a self-taught contemporary abstract artist, based in Cornwall. She creates, photographs and designs intuitively from both personal reflections and the imagination. After graduating with a BA (hons) degree in Graphic Design from Liverpool School of Art and Design, Diane began her career in media and public relations. It was several years later, after becoming a mother to two children, that she rediscovered her love for art and design. During these first few years, Diane enjoyed working with textiles – creating and selling quirky and colourful pictures. Sadly, not long afterwards, a loss in the family led Diane and her children to find a new home in the small Cornish seaside town of Fowey. The next few years, spent exploring both the beautiful Cornish coastline and the tiny islands of the Mediterranean, influenced a major transformation in Diane’s work. The vibrancy of these experiences inspired her to explore acrylic painting – an evolution characterised by contemplation, reflection, experimentation and expressionism. In 2016, Diane established her garden studio and contemporary gallery at her home on the outskirts of Fowey and continues to draw inspiration from the surrounding countryside and landscape.
