Artists Outside The Box
If you know us here at the Windermere Kirkland office you will know that one of our passions is supporting local artists. We find it very powerful to uplift and feature the beauty that was created right here in Kirkland. Art helps us appreciate things from a different perspective, and gives us a deeper understanding of the world around us. That is why at any given time, there is always rotating art on display at the Windermere Kirkland office. The art inspires our team and we hope it inspires you too!
To start off our 2019 Artists Outside The Box showcase, we have interviewed Diana Grant, who has had a passion for art from a young age. As a child, Diana began drawing and it was not until she won a ribbon at an art show that she felt she was on the right track.
Diana now has a passion for art and she creates both abstract and landscape paintings. Her method is to start with a concept that evolves as she is creating it. Many times when she is creating her abstract art she actually draws on a blank canvas before her painting process begins. Her landscape art is inspired by her sitting and looking out towards scenery, which she then beautifully recreates with her own touch on the canvas. Diana’s favorite color at the moment is a “dusty aqua” which she describes as: “smooth and earthy but also very quiet” and we could not agree more with that.
Artists Words Of Wisdom:
“Take a lot of drawing classes, start kind of at the bottom with getting the foundation underneath you. Look at composition a lot and experiment with different teachers and take different classes but keep working on your style because you have your own things that you are interested in and are important to you that you need to paint, and you paint those things.”

Our goal at Windermere Kirkland is to be a resource for the community. Aside from helping you buy or sell your home, our team is dedicated to adding value to our city. Every other Tuesday we will be posting a blog post highlighting different people, businesses, communities, and more throughout Kirkland. Stay tuned!
