Diane Ottinger has lived in Forest Park Southeast all of her life.   Since she was an adolescent Diane has been creating works of art.   For Diane art had always just been a hobby, however for the last several years she has been taking more time to seriously develop her craft.

“I really wanted to start taking my paintings seriously and step into the art world.  I have known Brooks Goedeker for 4 years now.  He encouraged me to get the word out about my art.  WUMCRC helped me set up my website, business cards, and for that I am extremely thankful.  I hope to be able to share my talent and support with other artists.”

Currently Diane is working on various canvas paintings of scenes from around the St. Louis area. You can access Diane’s website here and keep an eye out for some of her work around the neighborhood.
