Local artist published in national magazine

Local artist Judith Diephouse of Rockford was recently published in the summer issue of The Decorative Painter, an international quarterly publication and the oldest decorative painting magazine currently published. With 40 years of history, the Society of Decorative Painters (SDP) is home to the world’s most experienced decorative painters, teachers and designers.

Diephouse started decorative painting in 1974. After many years of teaching in her home studio and selling at regional art shows, she joined with Lynne Deptula to form Distinctive Brushstrokes. They design a full line of pattern packets and books that are available on their website. Diephouse has been a member of SDP since 1977 and she, along with Deptula, has contributed many articles to The Decorative Painter.

Check out Diephouse’s seminar schedule at www.distinctivebrushstrokes.com. She may be reached at distinctj@aol.com, www.distinctivebrushstrokes.com, or by writing to her at: Distinctive Brushstrokes, 9796 Myers Lake Ave., Rockford, MI 49341.

SDP’s mission is to stimulate worldwide interest in and appreciation for painting. The decorative painting style employed by SDP allows anyone, regardless of prior training or inherent skill, to pick up a brush and create a masterpiece. It is SDP’s goal to teach the world to create, and the work of teachers and designers like Diephouse are their primary helpers in achieving these goals. To learn more, visit decorativepainters.org.
