Dyan Law has held a lifelong interest in visual art. One morning at age five, she gazed up at endless blank white walls and decided they would make fine murals; colors were selected from a box of brand new crayons for her special palette. A few hours later, she proudly displayed her masterpiece to the “world”. These early “canvases” were the freshly painted hallways in the apartment building where she resided in Queens, New York. Her first obstacle to rather unconventional self-expression soon became apparent, after tearfully scrubbing colorful wax lines and shapes off the walls while the building superintendent glared. Her pride vanished almost as swiftly as an unsaved computer document. She quickly learned there would be many more obstacles to overcome along the journey to become an accomplished artist. She believes the key to expanding one’s inner resources is through endurance and acceptance of the ever-changing obstacles that occur in art and life; imagination develops naturally through a sequence of steps that lead to the true essence of the painting subject matter. Dyan frequently alternates her painting subjects eager to remain “fresh” and sensitive to the wonder and attitude of each new figurative or landscape work.
