Diane Neukirch is an artist/illustrator based in Madison, WI. She has taught both Fine Art and Computer Arts classes and worked for a number of years as a graphic designer before branching out into illustration and art licensing. Diane discovered a love for drawing at a very early age and after taking classes in computer graphics developed a passion for digital arts. For her work, she takes inspiration from the world around her, nature, textured surfaces and quirky stories. When she is not in her studio or in front of her computer, you will most likely find her on the tennis court ready to poach at the net.
