DIANE LAWTON - North Wales
Textiles & Mixed Media artist.
Diane ditched her career and moved to Spain with her sketch books, to run art, yoga & walking holidays. She also began a degree in Textiles & Mixed Media.
A house renovation turned a hovel with a garden into a rustic villa with courtyards, roof terrace, splendid gardens, and an art studio. With a massive creative binge,1000s of broken tiles led to her creating mosaic/ trencadis pictures & assemblages.
Her work straddles fine art and craft. She stretches them to the limits. With a restless search for the sacred, beyond religion, dogma; hidden amongst scrolls, mantras, archaeological finds, scavenging, old texts, and rock petroglyphs. She is often in her studio, teaching, making notes, researching, sketching.
Her sketchbooks overflow with ideas, many hand-made or inexpensive altered finds. Diane has exhibited in collaborative art shows in Spain, and she is working towards one in Wales where she has recently moved.
