Bronzes
 
Having been trained first as an architect and photographer, Diana has the vantage point of an intimacy with space and nature, which is made evident through her use of a bold stroke and a quick eye.
Diana's interest in art and architecture may have started after she assisted her father on a photographic assignment for the National Geographic. Diana went on to apprentice as a photographer with the magazine. She later became a registered architect.

Her formal studies in art and architecture initially took her to Paris with Hollins College where she received a degree in Art History. She then went on to Catholic University where she received her Masters of Architecture. She studied sculpture at the Corcoran School of Art, Loveland Academy of Fine Arts and Scottsdale Artists' School.


Living in Virginia and travelling worldwide affords Diana the opportunity to catalogue the nature which is so vital to her work. As an architect and artist, she is keenly aware of the plasticity of space. Her sculpture is dynamic and has the vantage point of an intimacy with nature which could only be captured through experience.

Diana's bronzes are found in private collections and gardens throughout the United States, Europe, and Africa.

  • Bronzed II: Drawn From Nature (2011)
     - It all starts with the line. Sculpture for me is the exploration of gesture, emotion and memory. Working with a camera allows me to focus and frame subjects from all angles but it isnít until I am in my studio with my sketchbook and pencil that all of that begins to synthesize.

    The focus of my art is the natural world. It is the genre of art called animalier. Rembrandt Bugatti was its master. I feel as though a work of art is successful for me if I can hear, taste, smell, feel as well as see a painting or sculpture. A cheetah looks in a stone like stare at something we canít see but sense; a bird dog points and another honors him with a bird in cover, the work horse puts his head down to the task at hand, knowing it is his job; two horses groom each other and appear as one. It is what I call the mystery of nature. It is that which fascinates me.
