Having wandered many of the rivers on both coastlines, Diane is passionate in her representation of the essence of fly fishing beyond the traditional perfect loops and posed shots. Diane relates to snazzy tackle, fishing dogs, friendships, still life and naps on the bank as significant moments that bring us back to the river. *images are copyrighted and may not be reproduced without the written permission of the artist.
