Dr. Diane Howard Langlois
A former University Professor, artist Dr. Diane Howard Langlois now devotes herself to painting the remote regions of the world, the Arctic and Antarctic, the peaks of the Canadian Rockies and the Namibian and Sonoran deserts.
By focusing on the landscapes and animals of these largely uninhabited areas, Langlois conveys the experience of visiting parts of the world most people never have the opportunity to see in person. Her paintings are not just compelling nature scenes but also capture the social, cultural, scientific and economic stresses placed on these fragile environments and ecosystems.
In this way her work combines art with social and cultural science. Dr. Diane Howard Langlois is a social scientist who brings academic veritas to her work. Her boldly coloured canvases also reflect her particular love of the Polar Regions, scientific background and her skill, discipline and insight into contemporary times. Her captivating canvases and visual narratives are contributing to a growing international art scene that broadens our own humanity and artistic tradition as we know it.
Dr. Diane Howard Langlois is represented by Agora Gallery in New York City, Masters Gallery in Calgary and the Federation of Canadian Artists in Vancouver. She is presently working towards her AFCA designation and has had fifteen paintings juried into the National FCA Gallery since August along with three paintings juried in for the National Crossing Boundaries Art Exhibition of 2017.
