When I first met Diane over 20 years ago, she told me that one day she’ll switch from being a designer to being an artist. After many steps along the way – grad school, running her design business, getting married to me :), settling down in San Francisco, raising three awesome kids, overcoming serious illness – she had her first art opening last weekend as part of a group show at the Autobody gallery in Alameda. I’ve always been a huge fan of her work, and her recent pieces are some of her best yet IMHO. The opening was exciting, there was a big crowd with many great friends stopping by, Diane sold a lot of her pieces, and there was something special in the air – a rare warm Bay Area night with lots of people in the streets, Cuban music playing across the way, Giants fans cheering at the pub downstairs, a late dinner afterwards. I wish I’d taken more photos, but here are a few to give you a sense of her work:

Those are really neat pieces! I’m curious whether she titles them (and if so, what the titles of some of these are)?
This is fantastic stuff. Too bad, I was sick and couldn’t make it to the opening. I hope to see you guys soon.
Uns haben Dianes Werke bei Euch sehr angesprochen! Ich finde es wunderbar, dass Diane bei der Verwirklichung Ihres Traums schon so weit gekommen ist und wünsche Ihr für die Künstler-Zukunft viel Spass, Inspiration und Durchhaltewillen. Ich freue mich schon auf die erste Ausstellung in Europa!
Really love these, very inspiring. Hope to see more 🙂
