Hi. It's Diana. The name Life Beneath the Pines comes from the pine trees I lived under as a child in Lafayette, Louisiana and then the pine trees I raised my family under in The Woodlands, Texas. Oh, they do throw things to the ground, needles, cones, pine flowers, and gobs and gobs of pollen. But the also have fabulous bark, texture, shade, and presence; they are homes to cheeky squirrels, talkative jays, and singing cicadas. I found the pines an inspiration, a pain, and a comfort, very similar to how I find life, so I named my art business for my life lived under those trees.
Well here I am, out and about or staying in. Either way I'm gathering experiences, information, images, sensations, thoughts, emotions, patterns, colors, and ideas that will find their way into my art.
