Dianna Fritzler’s journey into creating wild western images, vibrant florals and intricate abstracts was both circuitous and synergistic. At an altitude of 7,500 feet, Dianna was propelled into the world of black & white photography while studying Journalism at the University of Wyoming. Watching images “magically” appear in the dark room was like opening gifts on Christmas morning. Thus began her love of art. After graduating and then working in the PR/Advertising world in Denver, she sold everything and backpacked around the world to explore art and architecture. It was now official – art and Fritzler were officially dating. In 2000, she moved with her family near the towering red rocks of the National Monument in Grand Junction, CO and began painting. By 2003, her “exuberant paintings” were in multiple galleries from Santa Fe, NM to Steamboat Springs, CO. Dianna’s work is collected internationally and is in the collections of Children’s Hospital Colorado, St. Mary’s Hospital, Colorado Mesa University and Hospice and Palliative Care of Western Colorado. Her work also adorns the wine labels of Grande River Winery. She teaches both Bodacious Blooms and Cold Wax Workshops throughout the country where she is happy share her knowledge and challenge students in a fun and nurturing environment. Her biggest honor is to spread joy through her art as well as at numerous workshops.
