by extended stays in Paris throughout the 1980's and 1990's, Diane Devine maintains a San Francisco atelier.

Visit her studio in San Francisco and feel like you've stepped into one of her paintings. You will be most welcome by appointment.

Diane Devine has lived a very exciting and colorful life. She became a serious painter when she was inspired by an art teacher at San Francisco State. In her 50s she was an accomplished caterer bringing a unique artistic touch to her clients' events. She was praised for her creative interior design and gardening style with a 14 page spread in Country Home's Country Gardens magazine. As a painter she gained recognition using pen and ink and acrylics, but her journey continues today with her vibrant watercolors. No mater what adventure she has partaken, she has done so with her own unique style and an artists' eye.
