Diane is a native of the Bay Area, originally from Palo Alto. In addition to sculpture, her art practice includes drawing, painting and printmaking. Diane splits her time between her studio in the Mission District and a wood shop in the basement of her home. Before changing her focus to fine art, Diane worked as a designer for almost 20 years. During that time, her work received recognition and honors from leading design juries and publications. Currently, she exhibits her artwork throughout the Bay Area.
Diane earned a Bachelor’s degree in Physiology from UC Berkeley, a BFA in Graphic Design from Art Center College of Design, and an MFA from Stanford University’s Joint Program in Design — a collaborative program between the engineering and art departments. She lives in San Francisco with her husband, three children and two dogs.
