Original landscape and housescape paintings by Dianne Elsworth

I am a full time artist living in Derbyshire, England. I have a BA (Hons) Degree in textile design, but I have enjoyed all types of art from an early age. I have been painting professionally since winning the Derbyshire Open in 2002.

Interested in colour and texture of the land, I incorporate buildings within my pictures to become an integral part of the landscape. Sometimes I focus on the architecture and these paintings become characterful portraits, with a strong sense of the past.

My simplified paintings are my interpretation of the landscape, houses and buildings I see on my travels around Derbyshire.

My aim is to express my love of the landscape, architecture and heritage.

After several years of selling my paintings through galleries across the country, I am now a self-representing artist mainly selling online. Welcome to my new shop on Folksy :)

In the past, I have designed wallpaper and fabrics, printed scarves and cushions, married my lovely husband, owned an antique shop, restored an 18th century cottage and loved many dogs.

Three things I couldn't be without..... pyjamas, a dog and a nice cup of tea!
