Artist Dianne Munkittrick has devoted herself to the outdoors. From her work on vegetation studies, while earning her degree in wildlife management to her career with the US Forest Service, Munkittrick has done everything from radio-tracking deer and elk to cooking and eating a rattlesnake.
Dianne's work "Preening Pandemonium" a 24 x 48" oil on linen of white pelicans seen below is presently traveling with the Society of Animal Artists Exhibit and Tour. The Society of Animal Artists is the world's oldest and most prestigious animal art organization. Founded in 1960, its international membership stages an annual exhibition and subsequent tour in museum venues. We are thrilled to assist Dianne and Osprey's other artists spread their ecological message through their artworks.
Her lifetime spent in the outdoors has given Munkittrick the ability to create lifelike and engaging wildlife and landscapes. She uses light and color to set the mood of her work, translating her love of nature through her art.
“I strive to paint beyond the ordinary interpretation of nature and try to instill the awe and wonder that nature inspires into each piece. I aim to capture that elusive moment that transforms an experience with nature from mundane to magical.”
