Growing up, Dianne enjoyed creating art during her family outings and found inspiration in the desert, mountains, beaches and the San Fernando Mission where she fell in love with the religious iconography and the mixture of colors and patterns on the walls.
Talking about her career as an advertising and editorial illustrator in the 1990’s, Dianne says, “ I began using a language of symbols to find and express my own story, obsessions, passions, and questions. Moving from Los Angeles to Ventura during the el Nino years of torrential rains and flooding confirmed and ignited my junk collecting passion and I began making art with the detritus that I found washed up on the beach. I now live in the Mojave desert near Joshua Tree where I continue to dig deep into my story, psyche, thrift shops, garage sales and rusty desert junk piles for inspiration. The desert lends its magic. Road signs and birds guide my way.”
