Henshaw deals with the abstract and has an obsession with Searching for the perfect line - her work known for it's paired down lines and formulated composition has developed to a new enterage of blasting hues and tones using a plethora of line, print, collage & form. Henshaw synonymous for her use of gestured line and process work - works blind - detraining the eye - and focuses on the apparent, the banal and diary stylised method of dealing methodically with the abstract.
Diane Henshaw graduated with her Degree in Fine Art from the University of Ulster in Belfast in 1995 and with her Masters in Fine Art from UUB in 2000 and has lived in Tempo, Co. Fermanagh for the past 10 years where she works as Arts Officer for Fermanagh District Council.
