Diane Yglecias was born and raised in Southern California. She was influenced greatly by her mother who was a gifted artist and introduced her to art from an early age. It was not until years later that she was able to focus on art and develop a deep love for painting. She is an imaginative oil painter, driven by a passion for the beauty and awesome wonder of God’s creation. Accomplished in using traditional methods, Diane blends realism with a touch of impressionism. Her works are noted for their unique style and elegance.
Essentially self taught, Diane in later years was fortunate to study under Felice Hrovat, a very accomplished artist. He has been extremely instrumental in helping bring out her natural talents. Diane is quite skilled not only in wildlife and nature, but also Western and Native American Art; intrigued with images of the old west, inspiring the imagination by creating little glimpses into times past. Another favorite is old abandoned trucks.
Diane is also accomplished in portraits, including people, pets and of course her lifelong love, horses. She has been featured in the San Dimas Wildlife show as well as many local Southern. California galleries. She is also a member of the Associated Artist of the Inland Empire and the Pomona Valley Art Association.
