Diane Abt
Oakland, California

Diane Abt incorporates her study of Asian calligraphy into her artworks, whether in sparse black-and-white works or more complex, dream-like compositions. She currently lives in California and had a 35-year career in journalism before transforming her life-long hobby of art-making into her second career. She takes inspiration from artists like Paul Klee, Robert Motherwell, and Francisco Goya. Fun fact: she lived and worked in Japan for more than seven years.

I bought Sexual Healing and Gotham. Both are very interesting and look very professional. Diane's work is multi-layered. You won't get bored with it. Her frame work is precise. The woman is fascinating.

Comments About This Piece

The morning light gently emerging over the mountains of Aspen, Colorado inspired this one-of-a-kind watercolor monotype. The 12" x 9" image was printed on 22" x 15" BFK Rives paper, giving the painting a museum style border. It will need a frame for display.


Printmaking is the process of making artworks by printing, normally on paper. Except in the case of monotyping—a process that yields only one print—the printmaking process is capable of producing multiples of the same piece. Each piece produced is an original since it is not a reproduction of another work of art and is technically known as an 'impression'. There are many different printmaking techniques, all of which yield a unique aesthetic.


Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will require framing.

Limited edition

Certain pieces of artwork on UGallery, mostly photography and printmaking, are labeled as either limited edition or open edition. Pieces that are in a limited edition are produced in a set limited quantity. Open edition artworks are not limited in quantity and can be reproduced indefinitely. In both cases, each piece in the edition is identical and is considered an original. Limited edition works are generally more valuable because of the limited number available. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
