About Diane Exner

Cultivating Community is vital to how Diane Exner approaches life and art.

Proud to be a farmer's daughter, raised near Melville SK, Diane developed a deep love and passion for people and the great outdoors. With her desire for community, and longing to return to her country roots, she retired from a corporate career and refired her creative calling. 


Inspired by a treasured mentor and friend who shared,

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did,

but they will never forget how you made them feel,"

Diane thrives to pass that significance on through her work. 

In early years she used graphite shading to bring subjects to life; today she has transitioned to digital, using a stylus and tablet. She loves the flexibility of being able to be on the move and take her studio with her. As a Creative, this allows her the freedom to create wherever, and whenever, she's inspired.

Diane invites you to join her journey, as she continues to build community, one project, one encounter at a time, while walking out her calling and knowing, 'Every Creation Begins With Imagination.'

"I can not Thank Diane enough for the picture she painted of a friend's pet. The picture represents too many memories to share but let me say this ...
it brought tears to every family member who saw it.
Thank you Diane. Perfect!!"
