Spirit of the Valley by Di King


Di King sees the beauty in her surrounds. Always looking to capture the spark in her subject, she is well known for her remarkable representations of people, and painted landscapes featuring grand trees, waterfalls, grazing sheep and cattle. She has exhibited around the world, won many awards and sat on numerous judging panels.

In this exhibition, Spirit of the Valley, Di seeks to convey the essence of all that makes her home of many years – the Yarra Valley – exceptional. While we see beloved places such as LaLa Falls, Steavenson Falls, and resplendent valley views, we also see people. Di has brought the cooks, the community and the culture to her work, in this celebration of the multifaceted Yarra Valley.

Having received many international accolades throughout her career, Di now finds the thrills are closer to home. She is simply chasing the light – the moment when her subject is illuminated, and the ordinary becomes extraordinary.
