About Diana Bullock

A lifelong passion for the creative arts first developed growing up in the Birch Cliff area of Scarborough. This interest led to classes in various different mediums.

The beauty, simplicity and Zen quality of Sumi-e (Japanese Brush Painting) led Diana to study the Nagna style of Sumi-e at the Japanese Cultural Centre. In 1999 she submitted a painting and earned her Seal. Diana continues to study eastern art in workshops with Sumi-e artists, including artists from China and Japan.

Diana’s work reflects the influence of eastern and western styles of painting. There are traditional Sumi-e and traditional watercolours with some paintings a mixture of both. New works are also exploring the many possibilities of mixed media and acrylics. Visit Diana Bullock's website to learn more about her practice. 

Whitchurch Stouffville Studio Tour 

Diana Bullock is one of 23 artists on the 18th Annual Whitchurch-Stouffville Studio Tour. The Studio Tour is a reciprocal relationship about access to the arts; local artists are able to share their work with the community, and visitors are able to not only experience local art, but form relationships with the artists. All members of the community are invited to visit 13 venues (12 artist venues + Latcham Art Centre) the week of October 13 & 14 from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. Learn more about the Studio Tour here

Latcham Saturdays in Memory of Catherine Anne Courtney

Latcham Art Centre is proud to partner with the family of Catherine Anne Courtney to celebrate art and creativity with this exciting program.

Catherine Anne Courtney (1944-2017) was a devoted lover of art, nature and poetry. Catherine liked to create paintings of nature when she had the opportunity. She was also a collector of rocks, stones, oak and red maple leaves from wherever she travelled. She often visited the gallery and loved to engage in conversation with anyone about the artists and the subject of the artworks. Latcham Art Centre is pleased to recognize Catherine Anne Courtney and the support of her family.
