About the Artist

Diana Reuter-Twining's architecture and art is founded on principles of geometry and rhythm. She has come to understand art as an exploration of memory and image. She was given a Nikon camera at an early age, and she set up her first darkroom in her parents' basement. Armed with camera and sketchbook, she began to catalog her surroundings. She attributes her love of nature to apprenticing with her father, a surgeon and photographer who freelanced for National Geographic. As a young teenager, she accompanied him to East Africa, where he took photographs for the magazine's book, The Animals of East Africa. With over 30 trips to Africa since, her notebooks are full of inspiration.

Artist Statement

Wildlife Art is often described as the "also rans" in the art world, a genre that is outside of the mainstream which implies its irrelevancy. I find it curious because what could be more relevant than the natural world and what a better forum than art. Perhaps it is the combination of the subject matter, wildlife, and the strong leaning towards representational art which confounds art critics. When you look at the figures who are the pillars of the genre, Bonheur, Bugatti, Anna Hyatt Huntington you see that good art crosses genres and subject matter plays a secondary role to composition, technique and style. With this in mind I have been greatly influenced by Ostermiller, Bugattai, Khunert, Poortvelt, Lilljefors and Kuhn.
