Diane OLeary

Born and raised in Sacramento, I studied graphic design and fine arts at California State University, Sacramento. My career has been in the field of graphic design, but art is where my passion lies. Still in a career of graphic design, I decided to pursue my passion for painting in 2011.

I would explain my work as abstract, chaotic harmony, and largely spontaneous. It is a visual attempt to capture the essence of a time, emotion or experience. A disconnect from the direct, free from aesthetic rules of right or wrong. My goal is to create a sense of mystery and wonder within reality.

 My communication with each painting is an attempt to find within the layered strokes, harmony, peace, and closure, not only within each painting, but also within my inner soul. It is a constant quest in search of improvement and discovering the unknown.
