    In 1976 I was vacationing in Alaska and discovered a artist of Alaska wildlife by the name of Diane Coleman …….have you heard of her? Is she still painting? If so, please advise.

    Thanks so much.

      I was just googling this name and saw your inquiry about if anyone knew of this person. If it is who I think you are looking for, she may be my half-sister. She is from my dad’s previous marriage and my dad was stationed at a base in Fairbanks a long time ago. She is a Wildlife artist and she gave my parents some of her lithographs. She may still have some of her art displayed at the Fairbanks Alaska USA Credit Union. She has a studio in Winston Salem, North Carolina. Hope this helps. Mary.

          Sorry, folks- I asked a local gallery owner if she knew of Diane Coleman’s whereabouts or contact information, but no luck…

      I purchased one of her lithographs Alaskan Dall Rams, signed (128 of 1000) in around 1973 when I was in Alaska
