“The purpose of my art is the creating of it. I am drawn
in by moments in other people’s lives, expressions, and in the landscape that
surrounds the places I travel and the people I observe. Every day objects
bursting with color, texture and iridescence are among my favorite still life
muses. Various mediums are my playground. “
Diedra Long Camp is a watercolor, mixed medium artist with a passion for telling a story and connecting to people. She was introduced to the healing qualities of art while caring for her late husband in his battle with cancer. When he passed in 2009, art became a source of healing and a past time while raising her (then) eight-year-old son, Cade. In 2016, Diedra began pursuing her passion for art as a career after retiring from a twenty-two-year career in real estate.
She is a certified facilitator for Art4Healing, a non-profit group that guides participants to “use color to express what words cannot” in military reintegration, Hospice and hospital settings, as well as stress relief for homeless shelters, families, and businesses. She was the artist for the 2019 Great Texas Balloon Race in Longview, Texas, as well as a contributing artist and past instructor for the Longview Museum of Fine Arts. Diedra’s work has been exhibited and awarded in juried art shows at the University of Texas at Tyler in 2017. Recently, her first “solo” exhibit was held at NTCC in Mount Pleasant.
Her son, Cade, is a now a student at Texas A&M University. Diedra resides, creates, and teaches art from her home studio in Longview, Texas, with her Goldendoodle, Drake.
