About The Artist: Diana H. Stockton



Diana Stockton spent her childhood in St. Helena, playing in the creek or the hills almost every day. In college she majored in biology because she got to draw, and then was trained in museum administration at the Smithsonian Institution. The first exhibit she curated, ”The Art of Organic Forms,” was for our National Museum of Natural History. Diana went on to work at the Boston Museum of Science and Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA before directing the Essex Shipbuilding Museum in Essex, MA for many years. She then returned to California to care for her mother and two of her children in St. Helena. Currently, among several other pursuits, including looking after the family’s ranch, Diana works with Napa Valley Wine Library, editing its semi-annual members’ magazine and assisting with special events.

Works on paper and wood in watercolor and oil are painted from life in natural light. Much of the work is done in the field, some at home from live specimens. All are painted spontaneously–leaves, flowers, berries and branches dictating composition.
