Diane spends much of her time making and teaching art. Nature is the inspiration and source of almost all her work and everything she produces is taken directly from her photographs. She is currently working on a year long project involving single, and multiple photographic images manipulated in photoshop titled “366 iPhone” which, when completed, will be a creative representation of the year 2016. Working with image transfer has been an adventure and great wellspring of creativity and joy. When Diane is not making art, she is a Black Belt Nia instructor, and has been practicing Nia since 1995 and teaching Nia for almost 20 years; a holistic movement practice that allows freedom of expression, playfulness and attention to detail, all qualities she brings to her art making.
