About Dianna Cates Dunn

Artist, and now author of "The Truths of Tula - A Muse and Her Artist", (available through Amazon.com ) Dianna Cates Dunn believes that painting speaks volumes. "Painting is one way I relate to and communicate with people. After all, isn't communication considered an art form? Whether luminous or muted in color, drawn with subtle or bold lines, something you easily recognize or an image that leaves you wondering; I want each work to talk to you, to make you laugh, to intrigue you, to move some emotion within you."
