Dianna Swartz is a self taught artist who grew up in the lush rolling hills of Southern Ohio. From an early age she had a great appreciation for the simple things that she saw on the hills and valleys around her. The animals, farm buildings, tractors, streams and ponds all had interesting shapes that appealed to her soul. The people that she met were hard working folks that had a great appreciation for what God was providing to them. She loved to sketch things that appealed to her. Eventually she painted from many of those memories. Her art has been produced in framed prints, wooden panels, wooden trinket boxes, door hangers, candle labels, pillows, calendars, greeting cards, wallpaper and many other products. Dianna designed ornaments for the Ohio Governor’s residence for several years and was chosen from the state to make ornaments for the White House two years in a row. Her work has been in the Museum of American Folk Art. In 2011 she was asked to design exclusive Fife and Drum art to be used by The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, in Williamsburg, VA. She truly loves to help others when it comes to donations for her community. Dianna resides with her husband, Ira, in Huntersville, NC. She is the mother of three daughters.
