Announcement   WINGED MOTIVATION: My shop has been closed for a couple of months because I was taking care of my dear brother, who passed on November 8th. I am going to slowly get my shop up and running again. Thank you so much for your understanding during this most trying time for my family. With this, there have been some other major stressors in my life, so for the time being I will not be doing any custom orders. As soon as things straighten out, I will do them again. Everything in my shop will continue to be on sale and I will continue to add to it.

I specialize in custom made leather wings, horns, crowns, headdresses and masks. I LOVE working with natural materials. Most of my work is leather, but I also use bone, horns, antlers and feathers. I make eyes out of resin and paper. What a fun challenge to see where, in a piece I can place an eye! I LOVE doing custom work, so if you have something in mind, we can collaborate to actualize it for you. :)

I've been so out of it emotionally since my brother died. I've taken some pix of my latest pieces but haven't gotten them up in the store. Soon... I hope. Sigh

About

I live in a fantasy world filled with faces - natural and otherwise.

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” ~ Albert Einstein
Dianna creates a fantasy world with leather masks. Since her childhood in northern Maryland, where she lived in a pre-Civil War house surrounded by farms and nature, she has been inspired by the fanciful and macabre. Dianna is struck by the dark whimsy and relevance of childhood tales. Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland," with its (il)logic, and nonsense, has never ceased to thrill her. This fanciful, wild, witty book, with its occasional theme of dismemberment and death affected her so profoundly, that as a twelve year old child, she memorized two chapters of it.
Other influences include: Pat Kazi, a friend of her mother's, whose fanciful artwork is exhibited in several hundred shops and galleries coast to coast; Edward Gorey, an American writer and artist noted for his macabre illustrated books; and most recently, The Maryland Renaissance Festival where she's worked on occasion.
Her love of leather goes back to horseback riding, which she began at the age of eight. "Leather just smells good! Working with it is pleasurable to all of my senses and I LOVE IT! Quite surprisingly masks, it turns out reveal more about us then they conceal. I find them beyond fascinating and quite cathartic to make."
Dianna has a degree in Women's Studies. Her childhood home had a strong, infectious musical theater presence, with siblings often singing in harmony and a mom who constantly played Show Tunes on the turntable. She has performed in a number of community theater productions and a few operas. She's sung in choirs and small traveling groups as well. Her three children have all performed on stage. "Theater and Masks - they just go together!" Dianna played Blanche Perry at the Fisher's Renaissance Festival in Indiana this year.
Her oldest daughter is a published author, her son, recently deceased got his degree in chemistry, and her youngest daughter, also an artist helps paint the masks and works at UMBC in their theater department while finishing her degree in Fine Arts. Dianna currently resides on the outskirts of Indianapolis.
"We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever it seems." ~Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy
