Diana Croft

Diana Croft is a printmaker, painter and stained glass artist based in Dorking. She originally trained in illustration at Brighton University in the 1980’s and then worked in London, teaching printmaking and editioning complicated multi-plate etchings and collagraphs for the printmaker Brenda Hartill. She moved to Dorking just before the millennium returning to a life in the country – she grew up in Whitstable overlooking farmland. She draws much of her inspiration from the local environment of the Surrey Hills and the South Downs and has produced a series of stylised linocuts and collagraph prints based on this distinctive landscape. A love of travel has also influenced her work particularly in her use of strong, vibrant colour. In 2015 and 2019 she was shortlisted for the Surrey Artist of the Year and in 2018 and her work is widely exhibited, including at The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Oxo Gallery and The National Theatre.
