From Diane:

This is my first written writing blog ever. Yeah!

I am a multi-media artist and art educator. In my paintings I try to capture the spaces between speech and silence in a narrative way through play-filled whimsical settings. For the past 12 years I have been painting full time and show my work nationally.

I also love to teach! I have taught at Seattle Pacific University, Bellevue School District, Eton Montessori, Kirkland Art Center, Pratt Arts, and the Bellevue Art Museum. In the summers I run an art school for children “Go Go with Van Gogh.”

I live in West Seattle and my studio is in Ballard, WA. When I am not in the studio you can find me biking or hiking. I have been blessed with two beautiful daughters who are outdoor enthusiasts living in Hood River, OR.

I wanted to announce my 2nd online class:


“TableTop” Still Life: Drawing and Painting

via www.carlasonheim.com – offered starting November 11th.

Yeah for Traditional Still Life painting from artists that came before us
to record an event that happens daily —
gathering loved ones to share in a meal and intimacy.

Make your moments concrete in your world
by recording them in drawings and building skills that grow into paintings.

See * Explore * Experience * Color * Create
