Artist 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. 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.

Effortless Brush Strokes

Dianna Swartz has become known for her clean, simple lines, warm colors, and picturesque scenes. She claims that sometimes she herself is amazed at the wonderful results she achieves in her paintings. Much of her artwork translates well onto more than just print reproductions, as seen here on Apple and Pear Hooked Wool Pillows. The details created by the hooked wool are truly quite spectacular, a testament to the quality of the original artwork. Country Recipe Box will store your cherished recipes in folk art style.
