Diane's studio is in her sun-drenched, art-filled home. She has been creating professionally with precious metal clay for more than four years.
Diane studied design in college and then began a career in education, all the while taking art classes in various media. She knew she had found her niche when she took a class in precious metal clay. She loves the pace that PMC work requires, the inclusion of lots of texture and pattern and the "organic" feel of the finished product.
She recently started working in 3-D. Diane oxidizes most of her work.
Diane loves to incorporate items that she finds at estate sales into her work.
Look what happens when you roll out the PMC onto a texture plate. Rubber stamps, buttons and even burlap can create incredible textures.
Best of Missouri Hands. And she is now mentoring beginners by teaching workshops in oxidizing.
