Artist Dianna Swartz


A favored artist by many of our customers is none other than, Dianna Swartz. Folk artist Dianna Swartz was born and raised near the hills of Southern Ohio. She was drawing and painting they say, before she could walk or talk. Today, Dianna lives a bit more north in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. For the most part, she is a self-taught artist, crediting her inspiration to God. Her artwork has been featured at the American Folk Art Museum in New York and has also been transferred to many household decor items such as: pillows, throws, woven tapestries, furniture boxes and even wall paper! Dianna even had the honor of designing ornaments for the White House Christmas tree, as well as for the Governor's residence in Ohio. She is nationally recognized for her "Folkheart By Dianna" collection of prints being produced onto framed art and furniture.

These charming country style prints can be displayed individually or collected as a pair to grace a mantel space or wall. Each one offers a simple and quaint theme that provides an old-time look for your home. Here we see George Washington, Martha Washington, each exuding folk art style.
