Diane Phalen is known to quilters internationally for her charming and original quilt designs and her quilt-orientated landscapes.

Diane grew up in the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish farmlands. "As a young girl," she says, "I sketched barns, mills and covered bridges close to our homestead. A rainbow of quilts seemed to be hanging on every clothesline, fence and porch rail."

Today she continues to roam country roads for handmade inspiration. "I especially enjoy using quilts to express the brilliance of changing seasons". she explains. 'I like to say "I quilt with my paint brush'. Quilt-making is art to me and the colours I see inspire my own colour palette. "And to good result - Diane Phalen is America's foremost painter in the world of quilts and quilting and has built an enviable international reputation for her artwork.

Diane's education includes training in commercial art and design, drafting, technical illustration and architectural design, but her first love is incorporating lovely quilt designs in her warm paintings of country America.

Articles on Diane Phalen have appeared in most major North American quilting publications and she is a welcome speaker at many quilt shows around the country and on special quilting cruises organised by major quilting magazines. Her work appears on prints, cards, an annual calendar, a host of home decor and home fabric products and especially in her books on quilting, which include "Diane Phalen from the Painter's Art", "Diane Phalen Quilts: 10 Projects to Celebrate the Seasons" and "Painting the American Heartland in Watercolour".
