My name is Diane Dyal and I am a basically self-taught artist here in Tallahassee, Flaorida. I have been living in the panhandle since 1991, and before that I lived in New England where I worked as a graphic designer. I started painting in 2006 with abstracts. I paint with brightly-colored acrylics and enjoy painting animals, cityscapes and still lifes. I enjoy painting things around the house as well as landmarks and objects around town. I also paint mini 2-1/2″ square custom pet portraits.
I sell mini animal paintings at the LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts gift shop at 125 N. Gadsden St., Tallahassee as well as selling mini sea life paintings at Rock Landing Marina on 99 Rock Landing Road, Panacea and at Gulf Specimen Marine Lab on 222 Clark Drive, Panacea. I also sell a variety of art at All That Jazz on 84 Market Street, Apalachicola. I have gallery representation at 1020 Art on 1020 E. Lafayette St., Tallahassee where I exhibit and sell paintings with various subjects and I have an Etsy site at http://www.etsy.com/shop/dianedyalpaintings
As mentioned above, I painted a mini custom pet portrait for TV’s Animal Planet’s My Cat from Hell cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy of his cat Caroline and he featured it in his video blog which I have the link to below. I can paint a custom cat portrait for you, too! To order a custom pet portrait of any animal at any size, just go to my Etsy site.
