Artist in the Store – Tuesday

Dec

Painting: Diantha York-Ripley, Marsh Series, 2010, Acrylic on Canvas, 24x36 (Photo via http://www.dianthayork-ripley.com/about-artist.htm )

Join us at the Museum Store on Tuesday, December 14th to meet our Artist in the Store, painter Diantha York-Ripley.

Diantha York-Ripley developed a keen interest in art from an early age.  It wasn’t until her first art class at the University of North Florida however, that she discovered, “These people are speaking my language.”  While working on her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree, her technique was honed and refined.  Diantha was also a fligt attendant with a major airline, both before school and during, which broadened her global perspective and influenced her perceptions of the beautiful world in which we live.

She has attended workshops in both the United States and Europe, and is a member of the Jacksonville Coalition for the Visual Arts, the St. Augustine Art Association, the Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art, The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, and the Art Institute of Chicago.  Diantha is married with two adult children and enjoys gardening, cooking, reading and spoiling her grandchildren and her black german shepherd, Raven.
