Diane Cutter is an artist/printmaker with studios in Eastern Puerto Rico and central New Mexico. As the result of a much-traveled life, both as a child and later as a Foreign Service spouse, she has found inspiration everywhere, from the tropics to the Middle East and from the mundane to the exotic.
Working in several mediums (printmaking, pastels, watercolor), "recently my main concentration has been scratchboard. I love the challenge of working monochromatically, breathing life into a black board through thousands of scratches, to convey an image or idea. Because I tend to work more loosely with my woodcuts, scratchboard has brought me back to my earlier love of detailed drawing."
Cutter's work is in private collections on five continents. Numerous of her relief prints are housed in the permanent collections at the Spencer Museum at the University of Kansas (Lawrence) and the Art Museum at the University of Kentucky (Lexington). She is currently represented by Maji Lina Gallery in Palmer, Puerto Rico.
