Artist: Diane Love
"Art has been my lifelong companion. It never says no which gives me leave to explore any medium or material I fancy – nothing is off limits."
"As a child the shelves in my bedroom closet were the place I arranged my carved animals, greeting cards, post cards and trinkets. My mother proudly showed these displays to friends when they visited. When I had my shop, Diane Love on Madison Avenue I created displays of jewelry, decorative objects, silk flowers, fabric, handbags. I love making a composition out of disparate things. The large assemblages that I call paper collage combine my photographs, watercolors, gestural paint strokes, recycled colored papers- a continuation of my childhood fascination."
