"Diane began beading about twenty years ago, after trying her hand at every other type of art or craft that used a needle or fabric. Beading rapidly became a passion, and she pursued classes with a number of well-known bead artists. Over the years Diane began creating her own designs and developing her own techniques which have appeared in a number of publications. She has been a regular instructor in several bead studios and venues from central Pennsylvania to Bangor Maine, to Albuquerque New Mexico, and she has taught at several national shows including CREATE YOUR STYLE with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Tucson, the Bead & Button Show and Bead Fest Santa Fe and Philadelphia. Diane became a CREATE YOUR STYLE with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Ambassador in 2012.
Diane is married to another lover of crafts ? Bob.They live in Mount Gretna, PA with their dog Apache, but spend as much time as possible with their son Christopher and daughter-in-law Carrie in Portland Oregon or at their camp in Maine. Diane's love of the natural world and her travels have greatly influenced her choices of colors, shapes and forms."
