About Grace Diehl

 
 
  • Biography

    I currently live in the south western coast of the US where I practice my skill as a full time artist.

    Oils are my choice of medium. I find that they allow self expression for my love of the profession with each brush stroke. An idea is born in my mind and heart. Then I translate it to express my subjects with an emotional mood and color harmony paying particular attention to the careful study of light and observation of my particular subjects.

    Themes and composition also play a high priority in the many elements of the painting process. Also, other elements such as color, shape and edges are considered.I hold unique creativity and unity to the highest regards in connecting a visual dialog to my viewers.

    I have been inspired by many great Old Masters. They are long gone but their work lives on forever, Sargent, Vermeer, and Caravaggio to name a few.  Some contemporary Masters that I highly respect are David Grey, Jacob Collins and Ted Seth Jacobs, to name a few.

    In college I tried many "hats". After, working at this and that, I went back to college majoring in Computers. Working in this field for many years and raising a family, returned to pursuing art full-time. I have dedicated much of my life to the fine arts since it has always been a part of soul.

    I have been an artist for most of my life. Throughout my creative journey, I have had the pleasure of studying with many established artists. My current studies are under private mentorship of Lucas Bononi in NYC. I've honed in my drawing skills for two years at the Woodstock School of Art with Vince Natale. I also have taken classes/workshops with Todd Casey, Andrew Lattimore and Paul McCormack.

    I currently am exhibiting at the Front Porch Gallery in Carmel, CA. I have exhibited at the Mark Gruber Gallery in New Paltz, NY. 

    My artwork resides in hundreds of private collections worldwide and on a major Cruise Ship.

    I exhibit in shows and compete in competitions on a regular basis.  I've held a board position the Kent Art Association, CT., juried memberships in Lyme Art Association and hold membership in the California Art Club.

    My current artistic plans are to get out into the beautiful outdoors and paint plein air.

    I currently live and work in Orange County, California.

    **Notes: 

    All my artwork are originals. They have either been painted or drawn from a studio setup or photographs I have taken. 

    I'd like to share my artwork with everyone. Therefore, I've tried to included an array of pricing to fit most budgets. If you have any suggestions, questions or comments, please feel free to contact me. I'm here to help.

    Thanks for viewing my work.

Biography

I currently live in the south western coast of the US where I practice my skill as a full time artist.

Oils are my choice of medium. I find that they allow self expression for my love of the profession with each brush stroke. An idea is born in my mind and heart. Then I translate it to express my subjects with an emotional mood and color harmony paying particular attention to the careful study of light and observation of my particular subjects.

Themes and composition also play a high priority in the many elements of the painting process. Also, other elements such as color, shape and edges are considered.I hold unique creativity and unity to the highest regards in connecting a visual dialog to my viewers.

I have been inspired by many great Old Masters. They are long gone but their work lives on forever, Sargent, Vermeer, and Caravaggio to name a few.  Some contemporary Masters that I highly respect are David Grey, Jacob Collins and Ted Seth Jacobs, to name a few.

In college I tried many "hats". After, working at this and that, I went back to college majoring in Computers. Working in this field for many years and raising a family, returned to pursuing art full-time. I have dedicated much of my life to the fine arts since it has always been a part of soul.

I have been an artist for most of my life. Throughout my creative journey, I have had the pleasure of studying with many established artists. My current studies are under private mentorship of Lucas Bononi in NYC. I've honed in my drawing skills for two years at the Woodstock School of Art with Vince Natale. I also have taken classes/workshops with Todd Casey, Andrew Lattimore and Paul McCormack.

I currently am exhibiting at the Front Porch Gallery in Carmel, CA. I have exhibited at the Mark Gruber Gallery in New Paltz, NY. 

My artwork resides in hundreds of private collections worldwide and on a major Cruise Ship.

I exhibit in shows and compete in competitions on a regular basis.  I've held a board position the Kent Art Association, CT., juried memberships in Lyme Art Association and hold membership in the California Art Club.

My current artistic plans are to get out into the beautiful outdoors and paint plein air.

All my artwork are originals. They have either been painted or drawn from a studio setup or photographs I have taken. 

I'd like to share my artwork with everyone. Therefore, I've tried to included an array of pricing to fit most budgets. If you have any suggestions, questions or comments, please feel free to contact me. I'm here to help.
