I am Diane Uke (pronounced “you-kay”) and would like to welcome you to my new website and blog. This is where I get to share all my many and varied passions with you. I try to put a unique “spin” on what I make–and it MUST be fairly quick and easy (for my short attention span)! There is also a Shop for my mixed media paintings, prints, jewelry, and anything else I feel you may enjoy. Please stop by often as there will be regular updates.
I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. After graduating from University of Arizona, I packed my car and moved to San Diego, California, and have been here ever since!
After working several years as a CPA, I finally got to pursue my love of art on a full-time basis. I showed my paintings for over twelve years in a gallery in Del Mar, but am now providing it online. My art is heavily influenced by my love of nature, spending numerous summers in Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon, Arizona, and beach walks and hiking the trails of Torrey Pines State Park.
