A North Carolina native, Dianne T. Rodwell studied painting at the College of Great Falls in Great Falls, Montana, home for ten years of her career. In 1974 she began exhibiting in national juried competitions. By the late 70's her paintings had joined private, government and corporate collections throughout North America and abroad. In 1980 her internationally awarded and published works first became available as limited edition fine art reproductions.The artist's travels have taken her to Monet's home and gardens in GIVERNY, France and on to Provence where she followed the footsteps of Van Gogh.

Among the artist's awards are two National Grumbacher Awards and an Artprint Magazine National Publication Award. Raleigh City Market gallery directors and executives selected Rodwell's painting to become the 1994 Moore Square Art District poster. IBM executives chose Dianne to create the 1994 United Way campaign poster. Her oil on canvas depiction of Alltel Pavilion, Full House, graces the cover of the official 1996 Raleigh Visitors Guide. The original has joined the permanent collection of the Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau. Rodwell's Raleigh skyline Wish You Were Here! and Blake Street Boogie appear as full color covers for the 97-98 and 2000-2001 Wake County Bar Association directories.
