Hi, I'm Joanne Dietz, a Pennsylvania Artist and a member of Berks Art Alliance.
A Little About Myself.
Photo of (L to R): my daughter-in-law (Christine), my son (Brett), me, and my hubby (Frank). My philosophy for painting is " Keep it Real". I paint what I see!
My interest in art began while watching painting shows on TV in the 1980s. Then I started reading lots of art instruction books, The artist Magazine and eventually I tried to apply the knowledge that I gained. Since then, I've used all of the major mediums; but I always come back to my favorite - acrylics. These quick drying paints suit my style. When I decide on a composition; I just jump right in - using a paint brush to sketch the basic placement of all items being painted. Then I just start painting - until I feel it's done! This usually requires tweaking in my studio for at least several days.
