Woman Receives Power Washer for Birthday and Creates Stunning Artwork on Driveways

This year, Dianna Wood, a North Carolina resident, received a birthday present she had coveted for years—a power washer. Although not a trained artist herself, Dianna has long kept a range of creative hobbies on the side. Upon obtaining the power washer, it did not take Dianna long to transition from cleaning fences and bricks to something a bit more innovative.

Inspiration struck as Dianna was about to clean the driveway. “When I realized how long it would take (we have a very long and very dirty driveway), I decided to turn it into an art project,” Dianna explains. She began by inscribing words, and, finding the result compelling, moved onto bigger, more complicated subjects like owls, birds, butterflies, and flowers. On her blog, she briefly explains the process: “I use a power washer to ‘clean’ the images. I use the power washer wand (freehand—no stencils) like a giant spray can. I raise and lower the tip of the wand to achieve different gradations. It uses water pressure to clean away the deep-down dirt on the cement, leaving an image where the cement is clean.”

It didn’t take long for Dianna’s creative cleaning spree to garner attention—before she knew it, her stunning driveway art had gone viral. Although she never sought out fame in her pursuits of artistic expression, Dianna explained in her blog that she was grateful for the opportunity to engage with new people through her art.
