ABOUT ARTIST DIANE YOUNG:Painting by Diane Young - Mouse on a BranchDiane Young Manic Artist of Manic Illustrations

I take my inspiration from the natural world and especially love drawing animals.   I enjoy the challenge putting elements of a composition that may not be reality but is made to look real.  It is not often you get an owl holding a stop watch or an elephant carrying a crane feather!   Storytelling often underpins my images, with hints of humour and I paint animals featured in poems and folklore .  Your pet is part of YOUR story which I can depict for you in a painting.  Take a look at my Pet Portrait characters. Tell me what ideas you have for a painting including your pet and I will produce a sketch for you to approve.

Look in my images for gold leaf embellishment giving my paintings and sometimes my prints an individual and luxurious look.  That extra special commission is just an email enquiry away!  email me at diane@manicillustrations.com


Paintings and prints from my paintings.

Look for images from my Lost Things series (featuring fish, and a pearl ring…) and my Travelling Animals series (a cockerel with a letter, an elephant and more!)
