Diana Patten is an artist in disguise. She’s been drawing since she was five, but it was not until she hit 30 that she realized that, despite the world’s best efforts to have her follow a sensible existence, there was still an artist living inside of her.
Although she has a 9 to 5 job during the week, she finds time to draw and paint in her spare time. It is during these stolen moments where she can venture back in time to the days where a clean sheet of paper brought excitement and had the potential to unlock hidden treasures from her imagination.
Inochi is the Japanese word for life and all its many facets. It was one of the first special kanji that she learned from her students while teaching in Okinawa. It is through her art that she tries to capture her inochi and share these creative observances and memories with you.
