Diana VERTIS McIsaac has been painting for many years. As a current Member, Past President, and Director of the Sackville Art Association, Diana credits her increased inspiration to the Association and wishes to recognize with appreciation, Joan Gregory - her mentor. From her palette of blues and reds she forms rich hues of purple which appear in some of her favorite works which include water colors, acrylics, pastels. She has recently been quite successful in her experimentation with abstracts. Her teaching experiences include Beginner Painting Classes for the Tantramar Seniors College and private lessons offered at the Tidnish Bridge Art Gallery which she was instrumental in founding in 2010. Diana's paintings can be found throughout Canada, in the United States, and the British Isles. She calls Seagrove, NS home, where she uses her own photography as a basis for much of her work which can be seen at her website: VERTIS arts.
