DIANNE RINI ARTIST
Dianne Rini was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. She moved to California in 1982 where she began her journey as a visual artist. Soon after moving west she created her earliest series of pen and ink drawings, “A Diary Without Words”. This would become an eleven year study of the intersection between Rini’s visual and emotional worlds. The series foreshadowed her dedication to the visual arts and formed the foundation for her future work. As a self-taught artist Rini’s disciplined approach to “A Diary Without Words” forced her to hone her artistic abilities. The meticulous and monochromatic compositions in pen and ink both were an exercise in design and balance.
From 1991 to 1995 Rini lived in Paris and immersed herself in the French language and culture. Just as her move to California inspired to create the series of drawings, her time in Paris invigorated her need for visual evolution. She began studying different mediums and incorporating them onto the canvas. Her success with charcoal, pigment, pastel, and acrylic is evident in the skillful works that followed.
Dianne Rini paints a philosophy of gratitude and reverence. She recognizes divine in the mundane and translates her joy for living into her diverse paintings and drawings.

Music is the most important medium I use when painting. My creations mirror the graceful movement of a dancer while giving an illusion of the undefined.
I create through a series of intuitive choices; I never know what will appear on my canvas and I’m always surprised by where the journey takes me.
I find intrigue in my completed pieces. Some seem to reveal organic landscapes from another time or place; from past worlds, or perhaps an echo of a far away future.
To communicate through the freedom of movement, creating my art to music, allows my inner-self to be expressed in its purest form. The true soul of my work is revealed by the innocent imagination that guides my brush.
Art is a language. It teaches symbols that unlock the awareness of a human being. And with music it ignites grace and movement in unity with our souls.
