Member of the Month
Full Name: Diane Wandler
How long have you been doing your art: I have been doing art all my life but watercolour for the past 3 years.
What got you originally interested in the art you do: I was introdiced to watercolour art by a Nicola Valley watercolour artist JK.
What do you enjoy the most about your art: I enjoy watercolour because I can change what I’ve done a week, a month, etc, later if I don’t like something. It’s permanent, but not really. I like the way the paint runs around and mixes on my paper, controlled but also not.
What do you think makes art important: Art is important because you are creating something. It is developing the right side of the brain.
Why are you a member of the Kamloops Arts Council: I became a KAC member for more exposure, more opportunities to view other artists work, and to access more art grants that are available.
What are you looking forward to the most in this upcoming year: This coming year I hope to get some good pieces done in order to enter a show.
