This has been a busy and productive year for me.  I’ve enjoyed participating in courses on http://www.skillshare.com  Subjects on photography, art and design, illustration.

It has all helped to  broaden the area, method and themes of my artwork.

I still love doing fantasy art too.  Some of my work can be seen at http://www.infectedbyart.com  in their Volume  4 competition entries.

I have updated my web site http://www.dianakwhiley.weebly.com if you’d like to check out my latest

great and secret show

I always enjoy entering the many on-line art competitions. Seeing all the other artists work is an inspiration and keeps me going.

“Four Elements” the latest competition on “Exhibition Without Walls” shows some fantastic art.
I was also thrilled to get into their top 26 final images. Go to http://www.exhibitionwithoutwalls.com

At the moment I am concentrating on some fantasy art.  Above is a sample  “Great And Secret Show”

Art and Design

After just missing out on being selected to create a mural for the new Fraser Brisbane Hotel, I’ve looked around for  more design projects and happily found a lot.  The latest I’ll be entering is the  ” 2014 Art & Engineering Global Challenge”  at http://www.aavid.com.

It’s great to see art and engineering exploring connections.  Creativity is key to innovation. how will they enhance each other in the next 50 years?   How far will we travel?




Finalist in Competition

It was wonderful to be a finalist in the Latest  ” Exhibition Without Walls ”  on-line juried competition –  ” Impressions.”

My 2 entries were  ” Bird’s eye view” and “Cosmos” and can be seen now  at http://www.exhibtionwithoutwalls.com

It’s a fabulous site for digital art.  They provide themes and its great to create something from them; to expand on my own ideas.

this is another of the images I sent to the comp.

“Storm” another of the images I sent to the comp.





The open skein of vine leaf

maps the faith of monks

from fragile beginnings to the strength

and purpose of prophecy.

Blood and wine travelling the road

of pilgrimage in vessels of ceremony

as diverse as the taste on lips

of region, of the ritual passion

of harvest.
