Expressive in nature, whether it be a figurative, landscape, seascape, or a Mythical/Inner Journey painting, Diane's work stands as an inspiration in the world of art and creativity.
Vivid colors, evoking the Hawaiian landscape or interpretive painting, depicting the inner landscape are two aspects of the artistic creations of Big Island artist, Diane Renchler.
Born in Los Angeles, Calif. And raised in Las Vegas, Nev., Dianeâs art career has spanned a 35 year history including teaching, stained glass and clothing designer, batik and mural art. In 1994 she received a Masterâs Degree in Expressive Arts Therapy and has used this degree to work with children and adults using art, music and movement.
Inspiration for watercolors came from the early years of working as an airline stewardess where there were layovers and time to paint in many exotic areas of the world, including Hawaii. Those memories of lush tropical locations eventually drew her back to the islands to continue the long love affair with paint.
Diane opened her own gallery in 2006, Diane Renchlerâs Toulouce Gallery which is located along the Scenic Route of Onomea Bay just 10 minutes north of Hilo, Hawaii.
