Proud Of East Texas: Diane Froussard

By Joan Hallmark - bio | email

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Dianne Froussard looks for beauty in the ordinary, in both her art and her life.  Fortunately, it's easy to find that beauty in East Texas.  Although Froussard has been known to load up her painting gear and set up in other places, most of her painting is done in, and around, her rural Smith County home.

While Froussard's degree is in Geology, she's loved art since early childhood.  Froussard paints many subjects, but a recurring theme is horses, which she loves to both ride and paint, and the Froussard household pets.

You may have seen her work on "Therapet" note cards and on their posters..Therapet is a favorite charity and Froussard does a great deal of art work for their fund raising activities.
