Diane Nowell

Born in Lancashire in September of 1972, Diane Nowell (nee Zamorski) grew up in a military family, travelling to locations as far flung as Australia with her father's job. At the age of 5 her father left the forces and the family settled back in Lancashire to be close to relatives, where Diane attended St James primary school followed by Ribblesdale secondary school.

In the early nineties, she decided to try the forces life herself, joining the British Army as a nurse. This was a real eye-opener for her and has helped to shape her life since, which has been spent largely in retail management.

Diane has always had a love of art but never felt that her work was good enough to be taken seriously. That seemed to change one Christmas, when, stoney-broke, she decided to start painting again for budget Christmas presents. Everyone loved the pop art that Diane created for them, particularly the family portraits and photographs, that she would give her own unique makeover.

To her surprise, people started to commission her and that encouraged Diane to start to selling her work. Since then, the orders have flown in. She takes great pride in ensuring that everyone is satisfied with their order and feedback is always welcome.

Inspired by some of the famous pop artists of the past, such as Warhol & LIchtenstein, she appreciates the bold lines, bright colours and simple audacity of their work. However, there are many other influences to Diane's pieces, including her art teacher at secondary school who consistently encouraged and believed in her.
