Proudly embracing the beauty of classic realism in her painting and drawing, Diane is unafraid to challenge the purity of traditional art as she develops her contemporary approach to modern portraiture.
Academically trained in art at the University of Texas/Austin, her works show a solid sense of artistic capability. Classically mentored, her art has developed to reveal a fresh look at life. Brahm is adept handling oils, pastels, charcoal, and mixed media watercolor. Her art has won numerous awards in both regional and national shows, been published in national art magazines, and is represented by several galleries.
She enjoys sharing her gifts by teaching art, currently at a suburban school in the Houston area. Diane also holds workshops for adults, teens, and school aged children. Her summers are filled with travel, always gathering visual information for future paintings, designs, and education.
Diane enjoys working with the local art community; pleased to judge and jury art shows, present insightful demonstrations, and teach mini-classes. She has previously served on the boards of Houston Civic Arts Association, Houston Art Society, and West Houston Area Artists.
