Bio

 

Born in San Francisco, CA

Lives in San Francisco, CA

 

Upon graduating from SF State University with a BFA in Textile Art, Diane traveled to Japan to study under Tsuyoshi Kuno, a 4th generation shibori dyer. Mr. Kuno and his studio pushed traditional dyeing techniques in inventive ways to create new materials for avant-garde designers. Learning from artisans with vision and dedication to process has informed much of Diane’s approach.

 

Playing with material is a central part of Diane’s creative process. In her experimentation, she pulls findings that provoke a visceral response and uses it as a source for expression. Her resulting works are often textural and dimensional, echoing patterns and shapes found in the natural and urban landscape.
