Dione Holt

I am a landscape artist working in oil and acrylic. My studio is near Hotchkiss in Western Colorado surrounded by mountains, alpine lakes, canyons and deserts. Originally from Australia, I relocated to the US in 2013. I was a chemical engineer for 20 years before making the decision to paint full time in 2021. I have studied painting and drawing at many workshops and at the Houston and Denver Art Students leagues.

I paint plein air and works in the studio from postcard sized studies from travels around Colorado. I am inspired by the Colorado landscape and capturing the changing colors and light of the season.

I am currently coordinating weekly Paint outs in the North Fork Valley for the Plein Air Artists Colorado (PAAC) organization. Paint outs are free for all to come to meet other artists and paint with friends.
