Merlyn's Forest
Diane Batson-Smith

Art for me began at the age of 7 and my mother was the first influence on my desire to paint.  My strongest ability in the arts is drawing.   I have won many awards and fellowships due to my graphite renderings.  I have studied drawing, graphics, and painting- from Cleveland Art Institute to The Art Institute of Chicago, and Michigan State University.  My work is owned mostly by my family but is also in the hands of a few smaller museums in the South and in private collections throughout England and the East Coast of the USA.  
My black and white work exhibited this year at a Santa Monica Gallery opening entitled: Black and Gray, received an honorable mention.  Typically, my oils are exhibited at First Street Gallery and sometimes the Bowery Gallery in New York City. I own my own gallery in Philadelphia, which represents women artists under the name of gallerydbs and woman/ O.

Artist’s Statement:
I’ve been producing art since childhood and still fee that childlike excitement when I’m creating.  My art makes me feel alive and young at heart and reflects all of my past experiences now expressed with a personal color palette.
After graduating from Philadelphia College of Art in 1963 as a Fabric Designer I did large woven wallhangings for 30 years.  It was weaving that taught me about color and how it changed by being intertwined with other colors or surrounded by different colors.  It became a lifelong search for a personal palette of color.  About 10 years ago I took classes at Main Line Art Center to get back to drawing.  Then I took up pastel, oil pastel and acrylic/mixed medium which brought it all together, the drawing and the personal palette of color that developed from my weaving and now continues in the paintings I am creating today.  Creating art has never been as exciting as it is now, and I hope it lasts a lifetime.
