“An artist is a nourisher and a creator who knows that during the

act of creation there is collaboration. We do not create alone.”

~Madeleine L'Engle


"I am most compelled to plant the seeds of collaborative endeavors, putting creative experimentation to the task of melting boundaries and allowing an open space to connect, share, and communicate - where process is more important than the eventual product. All this takes place in my home or mobile art studios where I've created  spaces for contemplation and community.


For me, it all starts with a photograph  - a memory drawn with light, a feeling frozen in time, a connection of landscapes from within to without, a tool to elicit conversation and understanding with others. In reality, I cannot draw. My cameras draw for me while natural pigments, oils, inks, stitchery, and beeswax help me to play and express the intentions of those visions as I navigate through natural and contrived landscapes."

Diana has been a California desert based artist and educator since 1984. Her art practice is heavily influenced by a 35+ year background in public education, counseling, and travel. These experiences guide her toward initiating collaborative projects among strangers while developing a sense of community and play. She splits her time between her home in the Mojave desert and living out of a tiny home studio on wheels or a backpack exploring the western parts of North America and occasionally abroad.
