DIANA CUTS HERSELF OFF FROM THE PAST AND MOVES FORWARD ONLY Both Vivienne and her husband Matte work from home in separate studios located at opposite ends of the house. It’s one of the best aspects of their jobs, taking breaks frequently for meals and walks, providing a needed and enjoyable break from work. “Our house is backed up to a wooded conservation land, we love to get out and walk or canoe. I also spend a lot of time just looking out the window to see what will wander up next. I often get caught up in all that wildlife activity while I’m working, but it’s a positive distraction I think. More and more animals are working their way into my paintings.” And what would her perfect day look like? “One filled with lots of strong coffee, a good movie lineup on TCM, a backyard filled with birds and animals and some fresh new ideas.”
