Ms. Diana James

Born and raised in Aberdeen, Maryland, Ms. James grew up with a thirst for the arts. Her love for nature inspired her to draw and paint from the age of four and she was always singing. She attended Frostburg University in Maryland and graduated with a Major in Art Education and a Minor in Music. She taught art to grades 1-8 in the Maryland public school system and then moved to California where she sang professionally and trained dogs. Chicago was the beginning of her training as a scenic and faux finish artist. She lived there for 15 years starting up her own business, Decorative Artist, Inc. in 1994. She moved to Florida in 2004 and worked for the Museum of Vero Beach as an outreach and workshop instructor. In 2006, Diana moved to Kerrville Texas, where she is now the Director of Education for the Museum of Western Art and teaches the Principles of Drawing here at Schreiner.
