My name is Diana Kirkpatrick. I have been an artist most of my life. My medium of choice is charcoal. I have an MFA from Vermont College and an undergraduate degree from Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids Michigan. I have done many workshops at the Art Students League and Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia. It's only been in the last two years I've been extensively working on my large-scale drawings. My work has been published in many magazines and art books such as Art Renewal Center, Strokes of Genius, and Portrait Society.
