Meet an Artopian: Diane Dyal

Artopian Diane DyalWho has been your biggest influence as an artist?
Jackson Pollock is my biggest influence as an artist. I like the freedom of his style and when I first started out as a painter I sort of copied his style simply because it looked like fun. I also like the wildness of it as I believe it reflects his personality and mine as well.

What is your favorite color?
My favorite color is purple.

Why have you supported Big Bend Cares?
I love to support Big Bend Cares because of the value of their cause and the fact that they have made it possible for art to make a difference in our community as well as providing our population with a great event to attend each year.

If you had a super power, what would it be?
If I had a super power it would be invincibility. Since I am a sensitive person I believe this would be good so if I were to help someone or something and it was a difficult situation I wouldn’t get hurt emotionally and could be more effective.

What is your favorite song?
My favorite song is Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie. The whole album, Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, is just stellar so it’s hard to chose just one song.
