Diane DeLaMater Schmidt


Artist’s Statement:

“All of my work is based on my love of pure design. My background as an illustrator

Compels me to find story, form and emotion in every painting I do, be it abstract or

Realistic figure or a combination of the two.” My father’s love of archaeology has

Influenced my quest for seeking what lies beneath the surface. Cracked desert floor

And pottery shards are often alluded to in my work. “
