Diane Feught’s Artemis Journal: An Artist’s Fieldnotes

1024 498 Ann Mortifee

I’m happy to celebrate and support the release of The Artemis Journal: An Artist’s Fieldnotes, and to acknowledge the evocative and powerful work of Diane Feught.  An artist/poet living in Kelowna, she’s the designer of my book, In Love With The Mystery. 


The Artemis Journal is a skillful blend of artwork, autobiography and archetypal myth, set as a jewel within the Buddhist tradition. Written at the time of the loss of her mother, Diane’s book resonates every woman’s journey to wholeness and acceptance.

An exquisite book, The Artemis Journal features full colour reproductions of 62 of Diane’s paintings. In addition, over 47 illustrations intertwine with life stories, poetry and words of inspiration. A complex artistic tour de force of life choices, identities, spirituality and human caring.

“BRAVO my friend. I have just received, read, pondered and infused your book. It is breathtaking. It is raw and sublime, rich in pain and beauty, tenderness and wisdom. You have created a magnificent testament to the love, the agony and ecstasy of the feminine heart. From the smallest human need to the most transcendent rapture, you have captured the archetypes in all women, in all of us. What more can I say? You are a consummate artist, I am thrilled with what you have created.” ANN MORTIFEE, CM (ORDER OF CANADA)
