DIANA JOHNSON 
Pen and Ink Drawing 

Diana is a retired graphic designer. She moved to the Wake Forest area 8 years ago from Florida for the change of seasons and the proximity to the mountains and the coast which give her inspiration for her art. She remarried 5 years ago and lives with her husband and cherished beagle. She has a grown daughter who lives in the area. Her favorite medium is graphite pencil but her other mediums are colored pencil, ink and watercolor. Her favorite subjects are animals, nature especially trees. Most of her drawings of trees are a combination of the natural flow of nature and the influence Zen tangle. I love color in nature but sometimes it gets in the way of the inspiration or interruption that I try to infuse in my art so pen and ink or graphite pencil is a wonderful way to show textures, movement and feelings.
