Hoeptner, Diane

“I became inspired by the daily painting movement to paint in oils in 2007. I started with floral still life painting, but when I began painting my own cats (two at the time) my art took on a new dimension… Cats brought personality and a ‘fun’ factor.  My cat paintings have been featured in Modern Cat Magazine and The Artist’s Magazine and Cat Art Show L.A. I & II. More recently, they were finalists in competitions at Southwest Art Magazine and International Artist.

“I grew up in rural Ohio. The call of the big city and sunshine beckoned in my early 20s. I relocated to L.A. where I finished a BA in Studio Art and enjoyed many creative pursuits. Upon moving back home to Ohio, I got lucky-in-love and met my (now) husband. Contrary to popular belief, there is just one cat in our house at the moment. His name is Coco and he may be the most painted cat in history…
Many of my kitty subjects are initially photographed at a local shelter… Most shelters are filled to capacity. There’s so many wonderful companions there, waiting for humans. Should you need a furry companion, I encourage you to visit your local shelter and adopt!”
