Diana Reed Cook – August Artist of the Month

 

Diana learned her skill and expertise from local group lessons.  Before moving to Raleigh in 2007 frequent moves with the military, family, having 3 children, and horses left little time to pursue painting.  In 2007 she saw an acrylic painting class offered at the Wake Forest Senior Center and signed up. This was the beginning of her career as an artist.  “Low vision plus lack of organization and transportation are things I struggle with. Painting is my God given gift that gives me much joy and hopefully to others!”

 

Diana is a member of the Wake Forest Guild of Artist and Franklin County Art council where her Art is regularly on display and for sale.

 

Open House & Reception – Augustuly 6th, 2022, 12 noon – 3 pm

at the Gallery on the Hill. 

Diana Reed Cook's Art will be on display and for sale the month of August.
