The mystery within abstract and candid forms of art mediums has always piqued Diane's creative heart. 2010 was the start of The Candid Shutterbug and a love affair with sharing some incredible land and waterscape, sunsets, and candid art with the photography medium to help inspire, uplift, and, give unconditional love to others.
