Diane Divelbess was born in Phoenix, Arizona and has worked as an artist for over 40 years. She often uses woodblock or monotype printing methods, etching, sketching or painting techniques to celebrate her favorite objective or non-objective studies. The simplicity in her compositions portrays the quiet serenity important to her inner life. The result is curiously magnetic, drawing the viewer into a private, silent, austere world, precise, and mysterious; formal and centered. Divelbess has shown her work along the West Coast, starting in California and most recently in Washington State when she moved to Whidbey Island in 1995.
