Diane Paton Peel was born in Seattle, Washington. Her early years were spent in Stehekin, Washington at the head of lake Chelan where she attended the old Stehekin School, a one-room log school house.
After several years in Alaska, she moved to Whitehorse in the Yukon for 25 years, painting in oils wilderness landscapes, the northern lights and the wildflower fireweed. Her greatest source of inspiration we're told, came from walking in the woods looking at nature first hand, sometimes painting on location.
“My art is a celebration of nature,” she says.
Diane’s work was on display at the Yukon Pavilion at Vancouver at Expo ‘86 and is in the collections of the Yukon Territorial Government, City of Whitehorse, Andrew Phillipsen Law Center and Yukon College.
Her art training includes a course at the Banff School of Fine Arts. Many of her oils have been published in the form of limited edition prints, cards and posters.
She exhibits regularly at the Golden West Gallery at Stehekin, WA, the Spring Garden Fair at Manson Grange, the Yukon Fish and Game Association Art Auction.
A listed Canadian artist since 1985, Diane is represented by Yukon Gallery and Midnight Sun Gallery in Whitehorse, Yukon, the Lloyd Gallery in Penticton, B.C. and the National Gallery of Canada.
Her original oils make a wonderful impression on you. She resides in Penticton, British Columbia.
Kathleen Lake has a turquoise-green color and appears to be almost see through. Visibility is exceptional. In the background are monster mountains with snow capped peaks. The mountains stand right on top of the lake. It is very imposing scenery and very spectacular at the same time.
It's popular for canoeing, fishing for kokanee salmon and hiking along sandy pebble beaches.
Original frame and lithograph in good condition.
