Painting professionally since 2003, self-taught artist, Diane Clement continually pushes the envelope of painting by mixing all types of paint and liquids (wine, beer, alcohol, polyurethane, fire, etc.) and her use of experimental and unconventional materials and techniques epitomizes her expression of personal artistic freedom.. Her work has been described as “Freedom Made Visible”.
Her abstract work reflects her rebellious counter culture spirit. Not to be confused with Pollock or others; Diane has always been an abstract-expressionist painter… pretty much since the age of two. She continues to build an arsenal of techniques and a wealth of knowledge as the natural evolution from her experience continues to generate art for the Soul...not the Sofa.
