Diz undertakes many painting commissions, if you are interested in a commission by her please visit the contact page.
“I prefer gouache because for me it is the perfect medium, used thickly for an opaque, graphic quality or watered down to give a more watercolour feel. Also, unlike acrylics which dry very quickly, gouache can be forever worked into and over painted as it is water based. Plus as gouache is lightweight quick and easy to take anywhere, I have taken my paints on countless trips across the UK as you can see in our brand new Regional Collection.”
