Later after much encouragement she started painting again. Dianne is a self-taught artist and has taken lessons and workshops from well-known artist. She loves to paint landscapes, flowers and wild life which she does in oils and acrylics. She has donated paintings for auction to the American Heart Association in Memphis TN.
