Diane Hurst Art - Illustration and Design
Hi, my name is Diane Hurst; I’m an illustrator and designer, making artwork in a variety of media.
I enjoyed drawing as a child, and was drawing pictures continually while growing up. While raising children and home-teaching them, making artwork was always a part of family life. Having raised 9 children, I often identify well with the child’s world of wonder and imagination.
My work has emphasis on line and color – using ink and color pencil, and also other types of media: watercolor, oil/acrylic, printmaking, digital art, embroidery and stitchery.
For many years I was a self-taught artist, until beginning college studies. I have attended Clark College, pursuing a Fine Arts – Graphic Design degree, since spring of 2015, and this year (2018-19) am also studying Web Graphic Design.
I also participated in MATS bootcamp in spring and summer 2016, and in November 2016 began the MATS A course.
