About Diana Michelle

Represented Artist

Diana Michelle earned her degree in Fine Art with an emphasis in darkroom photography and a Bachelor of Science in biology from the University of Arkansas. She is the recipient of the Arkansas Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts 2009 Annual Bibba Pruet Scholarship. She teaches photography and Photoshop at Northwest Technical Institute as well as the Eureka Springs School of the Arts and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Her work exhibits at galleries and museums both locally and regionally and is a part of various private collections. Diana Michelle directed the documentary short Westland about the reclusive outsider artist Tim West, which has aired on AETN and was a part of the 2014 PBS Online Film Festival and the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival. She is currently working on the feature length documentary about Tim West. Diana was also one of 25 artists selected to participate in Artist Inc. 2020, an artist cohort hosted by the Mid-America Arts Alliance. Diana’s work is part of the Arkansas Arts Council’s juried 2021 Small Works on Paper exhibition that travels to 10 venues throughout the State. In addition to her studio practice she teaches the art of photography at her studio in Fayetteville.

So many aspects of an artist’s life change over time as we research, learn new things and evolve as human beings. My interest in the natural world has flourished these past few years and my focus now plays into the subtleties of nature and the human element that joins it. Nature is healing and all encompassing. As an artist I want to evoke emotion. Yoga, meditation, bodywork, self-care, all these things are my focus and I believe that it is evident in my work. We live in such an amazingly beautiful world. The Ozarks mountains are a spiritual place and I seek to dwell and study every little detail so I can be healed by this magical place. Mother Nature waits for me...and I must go.
