Three large 2m x 1m paintings for a vaulted staircase
“Commissioning an original piece of artwork can be a rewarding and exciting venture if you find the right person! You like an artist’s work but what is more important is how they relate to you, interpreting your ideas and using their artistic talent to create your vision. From our first meeting with Diane we were confident we had chosen the right person. It was an enjoyable and collaborative process, with Diane producing several maquettes and checking at several stages that the paintings were developing as we wanted them. Diane combines excellent interpersonal skills, a businesslike approach and is a greatartist!
We have three large magnificent paintings in our hall and landing rising from the floor to the vaulted ceiling.”
David and Sue Briscoe, Purely On Thames, Berkshire
The palette and the movement really captures the spirit of our garden, and the local countryside, at this time. It is the essence of what has been so uplifting.
So, I am really delighted with this work and wouldn’t change a thing. It’s so curious to me: how an abstract ‘inspired by, not a portrait as such’ can be conveyed by photos and conversations and ends up representing a whole feeling, entirely recognisable as the spirit of our home. Marvellous – I am awestruck, frankly.
Thank you very much.

“Having fallen in love with Di’s ‘One Night in Paris’ cityscape and it taking pride of place on our wall, we have since commissioned 2 further pieces and couldn’t be more delighted. Our most recent is ‘Hong Kong Harbour’ and the colours are simply exquisite. Di has beautifully captured the magic & the excitement of Hong Kong and the memories of our holiday bring a smile each time we look at it. Thank you so much but where next- Dubai??”

Commissioned by GLC Solicitors Guildford for their corporate boardroom
Capital City XIII 100 cm x 80 cm
“The latest addition of colour to the Burton household. CityScape XIII by the massively talented Diane Haddon-Moore. Commissioned as a permanent reminder of my walk to work in the city with Carl Lee all those years ago: London Bridge, Hays Galleria, Tower Bridge, Tower of London and up Mansell Street…almost 20 years ago! Brought right up to date with The Shard, Cheesegrater The Gherkin, London Eye, City Hall and of course a glimpse of “Blood Swept Lands and Sea of Red”. Both Karen and I are thrilled to bits with it”

Wilf 60 cm x 60 cm
“I thought I would write a note to say how pleased we have been with your interpretation of ‘Wilf’ our Old English Mastiff dog. His character has been captured perfectly and your distinctive style has added a fabulous dimension to him. His portrait is a very valuable part of our home, having been on prominent display in out living room since we took ownership of it. The inspired way you have depicted him makes it look as if he’s watching us all the time.
His painting will be treasured always.
Thank you so much for the care you have taken to capture Wilf so perfectly.”

Fiona Shaw, Hampshire
“I’m overwhelmed !!! The paintings of Meggie you did for my daughters are adorable and so cute and my husband loves his two new London cityscapes. They look fabulous hung with the one he bought from you at Windsor a few years ago. You did a brilliant job. Thank you so much. ”

Capital City XIV
50cm x 50cm
Trafalgar Square 160cm x 80cm
“We have been delighted with the painting that we commissioned Diane to do during 2016. It is a unique and brilliant piece of work, capturing Trafalgar Square, and has drawn widespread praise. Throughout the process, she was thoughtful, considerate and timely. All this shaped the final painting. Diane was a friendly cheerful artist to work with and we are very happy to highly recommend her.”
Reverend David and Mrs Domini Barrett, Colchester, England
Todays the Day 90cm x 60 cm
“We absolutely love our wonderful vibrant and inspiring painting from Diane Haddon-Moore bought in May 2017. It brightens up an otherwise black and white decor -inside and out: with a rather cold white slapped on by the builders after the previous occupants had a house fire. Although the curtains in our bedroom are a rich turquoise, which supports the artwork, the painting lifts our spirits every time we look at it.”
Carol Christmas – Cheltenham
The View from St Marks Square 160cm x 80cm
“Diane, thank you for everything! We are so happy with our painting. It is finally on the wall! We will be in touch after Easter with regards to the other commissions.”
