Diane is a versatile and accomplished local artist whose vibrant and distinctive style promises to captivate our audience. We invite all art enthusiasts to come and enjoy her inspiring creations."
Diane Woodward calls herself an "Excessful" artist. She expresses her creativity through a range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, icons, assembles, mittens, knitting, mask making glass-blowing, and furniture-making. Her love of colour and fearless use of red and pattern is evident in her bright, often mysterious, and humorous paintings of animals and people.
Woodward has had over 50 solo exhibitions in Ontario and Québec, including 2 major shows at The Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa. Local Colour will feature many of Diane's new paintings, including a tribute piece dedicated to the late Dr. Godfrey, a beloved Local Hero who practiced medicine until COVID-19 forced him to retire at the age of 102.
Diane's charitable contributions have spanned continents. During the COVID-19 pandemic, she made over 5,000 masks and generously gave them away. This summer, she plans to paint a mural outside the Madoc Food Bank and inside The Heart of Hastings Hospice.
For the past 15 years, Diane has included Ukrainian Easter Eggs in her paintings. When the war in Ukraine started, she painted them to help raise funds for John the Brewer of Churchkey in Campbellford to support his missions in Ukraine.
