Born in Guildford in 1935, Diana Matthews studied Fine Art at Bath Academy of Art, Corsham from 1954 – 1956. Here she was trained by William Scott as well as visiting lecturers including Antony Fry, Peter Lanyon, Bryan Winter, Adrian Heath and Gillian Ayres.

She went on to teach art at various secondary schools. In 1985 she became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Art. It was only when Diana retired in 1995 that she was able to concentrate fully on painting full-time and to focus on painting still life and abstract work.
