Diana Mulder grew up in Ridgefield Park, NJ, a small town outside of NYC. After 20 years as an Architectural Designer in So. California and raising two daughters, she and her husband relocated to the Central Coast where she expanded her creative talents to include her passion for painting, mostly in mixed media.
Her pursuit of art became more serious in nature, when she painted a portrait of her own dog, Tucker and showed a few clients and friends. Requests for dog portrait work keeps her busy even to this day.
Depending on the day, you might find her preparing architectural designs for a client, working on a textural painting, or painting a dog portrait for a friend or loved one. Her passion for the fine arts finds it way into everything she does and her attention to detail is obvious in her professional as well as personal projects. She enjoys using many different materials besides oil and acrylic in her work such as wood, papers, plaster and burlap.
Diana's work has been selected by the Juror Committee to be part of Phantom Project 13. Her piece "Gone Gold" will be on display for the the summer of 2018. She is also exhibiting at Art Central in San Luis Obispo. She is passionate in her goal of creating that which will inspire her clients, students, and friends alike. This passion has been a life-long pursuit and her greatest joy is sharing it with others whether professionally or just for fun!
