Diane is a sculptor and writer living in El Granada, California. She has had gallery exhibitions in Ontario and Quebec, Canada, and in California where she showed claywork, framed cut-paper sculptures, brush drawing and poetry in hand-made books. Sculptures over the years have been of porcelain, earthenware, polymer clay, paper and fiber. The theme that has woven itself throughout all these works has been energy expressed through the feminine form. Lover, mother, daughter, dancer, goddess, dakini, shaman, queen of each of the Five Elements, she-Buddha. Standing, sitting, dancing; with her lover and alone… Recent work includes watercolor paintings honoring the Five Elements and the way in which they dance with one another. In addition are depictions of Portals: those mysterious doorways between dimensions, that one encounters from time to time… Originals of these are on the walls; photo prints, both matted and presented as blank note cards, can be found in the print and card area of this exhibition.
