| Dianne has spent her life capturing images from the natural world and translating them into her own unique design. It has been the quest for image and colour on silks in particular that has driven her energy up to the present, however her work is also represented on canvas.
Dianne spent her childhood in a rural town, in Western Australia.
She discovered Batik while attending a special art school during her early teenage years.
This captured her interest for fifteen years, while she pursued a Bachelor of Education in the Arts and reared three children.
After a period of time living in the idyllic seaside town of Albany, Western Australia.
Dianne travelled for some years with her family in a large mobile home with attached studio.
This bought her attention to The Great Barrier Reef and Rainforest, along with the beautiful Flora and Fauna which inhabit such precious areas.
Silk became the primary means of expression as it captured the intense colours and provided the means for drawing detail.
Drawing the attention of International customers, Dianne was encouraged to develop a clothing range as silk is so wonderful to wear and easy to wash.
This became a consuming phase that has continued until today, incorporating the patience and detail experienced with batik with the vibrant colours available with silk painting.
Within this clothing experience Dianne was brought closer to the emotional and physical needs of her private customers.
Her clothing became known for it’s healing qualities and design to fit individuals with special needs.
Due to it’s unique nature, it is also popular within the world of public speakers, special occasion outfits and easy to wear and care travel outfits.
Dianne’s creativity has taken her to Hawaii, Japan and New Orleans where for many years she has been involved with fundraising activities and meeting with personal clients.
Dianne’s passion continues to be , to represent the vanishing natural world.
“It is not difficult to bring an individuals attention to the beauty that exists within this planet of ours.
People are so busy and wound up living within this vast economic world of ours: they are usually very appreciative to be reminded of beauty. And I enjoy the connection”
Dianne can also be in Yulara, Central Australia, at the base of Uluru, where she undertakes an artist in residency at least once a year. “The desert clears my head, and the colours inspire. The sky and the earth settle my spirit so I can take my next step.”
