"I am fascinated by how we learn and evolve as creative beings. The creative process is full of rich opportunities to grow, understand and share our experience of being in the world. I know, and constantly witness in others, that the process of making with our hands has the ability to transform us. I feel that my ability to navigate my life experiences and move into new territory over the years has deepened my creativity in ways I could not have imagined. It is my best creative work." -Diane
