Hello, I'm Dianne ... an arty, fossil digging, adventure seeking, camera happy kinda girl and I am so glad you stopped by!
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Art Education from The University of South Florida and I currently work in the Early Childhood field of education. In addition, I am also a Mixed Media artist and former Gallery co-owner who has traveled and exhibited my artwork throughout the US.
I am creatively inspired by nature, awed by the color of sunsets and centered by the sounds of ocean waves or babbling creeks. My passion for digging and hunting for prehistoric fossil treasures from coastal beaches, creeks and rivers have added new creative ideas and designs to my art portfolio. Whether it is a millions of years old shark tooth found in the surf and then wire wrapped into a necklace or a scenic moment captured in print from my travel photography, each design offers a unique window to see and share this amazing world through my eyes.
As a Mixed Media artist I also create with a variety of different art materials that do result in various styles. I enjoy the simple element of idea exploration and limitless play during the creative process. I am surrounded both by natural beauty and interesting people. When combined together, my final art products have their own varied, different and unique stories. I like staying fluid with ideas and playing with paint, resin, stamped metal, glass, clay photography, wire and more!.
