DMWART's Profile

About

Special Announcement:
DMW had been having vision trouble, [distance and close and cataracts, and astigmatism,] for a long time, which was getting worse and worse. In the past week she had two eye surgeries and is recovering well. It remains to be seen if her talents can create beautiful things again because her close vision was not completely fixable because she lacked the funds to do that. Maybe some day she can, but for now, at least, part of her dreams have come true and she is very happy. Please wish her well and keep her in your prayers that the future holds the final solution her eyesight needs.

A few words from DMW:

Hello world and fellow panda fans! I am fascinated by pandas, so many years ago I named my shop here DIANAPANDAMONIUM. I didn't really do anything with it until November 2013, but the name stuck. My artwork is…

A few words from DMW:

Hello world and fellow panda fans! I am fascinated by pandas, so many years ago I named my shop here DIANAPANDAMONIUM. I didn't really do anything with it until November 2013, but the name stuck. My artwork is usually signed DMW or DMWART.

Anyway, I design and make jewelry and quilts and clothes and I also paint portraits and landscapes and abstract art. All of these artistic endeavors seem to merge for me. The other parts of the shop include help in gathering the raw materials, doing the legwork like shopping and shipping and bouncing ideas off of. But I do all the hands on process myself working alone, either at my beading table, the sewing machine or the easel.

Almost nothing gives me greater pleasure than to create something new everyday, when I can. I have been disabled for over twenty years by a few types of arthritis and so even when the mind is willing, the body is not. More recently, my vision is deteriorating and I am challenged to continue and can do less each day. I have a custom made power chair that really helps support my deteriorating spine.

I am trying to share my original creations for the first time with an audience wider than Western New York. I LOVE SENDING MY ORIGINAL CREATIONS TO PEOPLE AROUND THE USA AND THE WORLD. Is there a greater HONOR?

I hope you enjoy browsing and find something that excites you. For me, the most exciting idea I have is the one I am working on at the moment. And when I put that in the finished pile and photograph it, it is on to the next exciting idea and so on. I would have to live 500 years to run out of ideas for new things to design.

Thanks for visiting my shop.
