Born in Lahr, Germany in 1983 Dianne quickly developed a passion for travel. Dianne’s love for art also developed at an early age as an avid drawer on paper, sidewalks and walls but it wasn’t until 2002 at the Ontario College of Art and Design that Dianne fell in love with clay. Since graduating in 2006 Dianne has continued her passion for art and travel by fusing the two when living aboard. Currently based in Toronto, she is focused on exploring ergonomics and utilitarianism, fused with her love for drawing by sketching on the surfaces of her pots. Dianne has exhibited internationally, and sells locally. She teaches ceramics at the Gardiner Museum, The Jewish Community Centre and assists in Toronto based ceramic studios including OCAD University’s.
