Dianne Poinski Scenes that suggest mystery,
serenity, and simplicity, have always inspired me. With
my camera focused to capture the image, I allow myself to slow down
and reflect on the quiet beauty before me. In this busy world of
speed and technology, it is my hope that I can give back to the
viewer a little bit of the calm and inspiration I experienced while
creating the image.
This current series, "Looking Up", is the result of noticing
while on daily walks through my neighborhood, the simple beauty
of bare branches, spring blossoms and seasonal leaves as they gracefully
curve, stretch and bend in response to the elements.
While attending college to pursue an accounting degree, Dianne took
a black and white photography course to help satisfy the art requirement.
Passion for photography developed almost immediately and her goal
of becoming a CPA quickly disappeared.
Dianne’s images are available worldwide as prints and greeting
cards published by Portal Publishing, Marion Heath and Bentley Publishing
Group. Corporate collectors include St Mary’s Hospital in
San Francisco, Kaiser Hospital in Sacramento and ResMed Corporation
in South Carolina.
Dianne works out of her studio located in the ARTHOUSE Building
at 1021 R Street in downtown Sacramento.
