I am Diana Hudson, a Lancashire lass who grew up in a little village outside Burnley. I travelled extensively and worked all over the world before returning to my roots in the Pendle area. As a dog breeder and judge, I specialised in pet portraits for over 20 years before adding portraits, still life and landscapes to my portfolio. I am mostly self taught and have studied for a degree in Fine Art. I worked mainly in watercolour and now in coloured pencil. I have had art exhibited at the Mall Galleries and Bankside Gallery in LOndon and have won numerous competitions culminating in Best animal painting at the EAC Art Awards in 2013 and Best in Show at the UKCPS Keswick exhibition in 2013.
