Illustrated greeting cards & playing cards

Dianne’s subject focus has changed over the years. The influence of vineyards dominated when living in the Barossa Valley where she had a gallery. A move to Aireys Inlet resulted in many pieces featuring the famous lighthouse.
However, the backbone of Dianne’s inspiration for her painting has always been words- sayings, music and poetry. Dianne loves to experiment with different mediums: oil pastels, water colour, acrylic, pencils and mono prints, often using them together.
Dianne has exhibited in galleries in South Australia and now in Victoria. Many of her paintings have found homes throughout Australia and overseas. Many of her works are used for her gift cards.

Dianne has recently designed a deck of playing cards featuring magpies:
“Designed during long covid, this deck of 53 individualy hand painted images of magpies (+the back design) are uniquely Australian. For spades I have used brown around the symbol to represent the earth. Clubs are done in green, for clover; diamonds blue for the sky and the hearts are ringed in red to represent the Circle of Life.  They have been printed locally on quality card and the boxes were also sourced in Melbourne.
My gift cards are individually adhered to the card by me so I think of them as hand made.  The images have all been paintings by me, most of them sold.”
