Diane has been printmaking and painting since college days at the University of Oregon. Currently, she is exploring some new techniques, one of which is an abstract layering of color, texture, and line. This technique involves hand transfer of ink using pieces of plastic sheeting and a variety of tools for mark making. The results are rich and colorful. Her favorite is a piece called “Crows.” Another technique involves negative space and collage. She is using some wonderful handmade organic papers for this to emphasize texture. She is also continuing The Dreamer Series which are large prints done on floor press combining print, collage, paint and ink. The Dreamer was followed by Maria de la Man͂ana, then by The Fisherman. Diane is waiting to see who will show up next.
