Dianne Sammons, Newark Member Since August 2010 Artist Statement Hello. My name is Dianne Sammons. I am an artist based in Delaware. I have painted murals professionally for 12 years, but have spent my whole life making art. I have always loved doing art for kids because I love the excitement they get when you brighten their world. I get to see it everyday. From watching my 1 year old interact with the characters on his wall to seeing my 9 year old daughter's ever expanding creativity. I love to see the reaction of the children I paint for when I reinvent their spaces.
I love staying up most of the night (but not paying for it the next day), procrastinating, and playing with my kids. I like to read when I can and always watch T.V. shows on my laptop while I paint.
The name JJ West Studio is a tribute to my amazing kids, Jaiden and Weston.
