Diane Long is a self-taught South African artist currently residing in the tranquil bushveldt of the North West Province. Born in August 1970, her passion for drawing and painting started at a very early age.
She started recording her creations only later in life. More serious painting started in 1991, 1998, 2005/2006, 2010. Mostly painting for friends and family but nothing serious. Life got in the way of her passion for art. In 2013 she moved to the beautiful bushveld and it is here in the tranquillity of nature that she found her creative energy again. 2014 marked her first year of painting as a full-time artist.
She named her studio Stukkie Bos Art Studio for obvious reasons and in October 2017 added a Gallery. Now known as Stukkie Bos Art Studio and Gallery.
Beautifull pictures are her inspiration, especially cattle. Nguni and Boran are her favorite. She doesn’t favor any specific medium although charcoal, acrylic and oil feature under her best work.
