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:
