A third-generation Arizonan born and raised in Phoenix, Diane has a degree in German from C.W. Post College of Long Island University.
Glass has always interested Diane and she was finally able to devote some time to it in 2002. After trying stained glass and lampworking, she found fusing and it became her passion. Diane began by making jewelry, however after a variety of workshops and classes (as well as the purchase of a bigger kiln) she is now working on larger items: tiles, bowls, plates, wall hangings and miscellaneous items.
Diane loves to play with colors and geometric patterns while maintaining simplicity, elegance and sometimes whimsy. Diane's themes are Nature (especially the Sonoran desert and leaves) faces and space.
Diane has work in galleries in Tucson, Cave Creek and Tubac, AZ and Richmond, VA.
