Dyan Newton resides in Abernathy, Texas, just north of Lubbock, Texas, with her husband of 19 years. She has painted for over 38 years working in watercolors, acrylics, pastels and oils. Throughout the years, Newton has developed her own impressionistic style of painting, and her work is most recognized by her lively brushwork and bright, vivid colors.
Newton is inspired by the beauty of a summer day or the innocence and “awe” she sees on a child's face. In each painting, she captures the same joy that she felt when she encountered the scene originally. Many viewers say they love her paintings' vibrant colors and how they radiate “happiness”.
Dyan Newton has paintings in private and corporate collections throughout the U.S. and abroad. She also teaches classes/workshops throughout the year. She is a signature member of Artists of Texas and Western Federation of Watercolor Societies and has won numerous awards locally and internationally.
