Dianne captures the spirit of nature on paper and canvas with watercolor, acrylic, pastel, oil stick and traditional oils. A North Carolina native, Dianne studied painting at the College of Great Falls in Great Falls, Montana home for ten years of her career. In 1974 she began exhibiting in national juridic competitions. By the late 70's her paintings had joined private, government and corporate collections throughout North America and abroad. In 1980 Dianne’s internationally awarded and published works first became available as limited edition fine art reproductions.
The artist's travels have taken her to Monet's home and gardens in Giverny and on to Provence where she followed the footsteps of Van Gogh. Among the artist's awards are two National Grumbacher Awards and Artprint Magazine's National Publication Award. Raleigh City Market gallery directors and executives selected Rodwell's painting to become the 1994 Moore Square Art District poster. IBM executives chose Dianne to create the 1994 United Way campaign poster.
