About Diane  "For me, hair represents humanity and is a rich material thick with history, genetics and societal taboos. I use hair in the form of hairballs, locks, sewing thread, matting, and weaving fiber.

In 1993 I shaved my head and began saving my hair. This daily ritual of rolling a hairball in the shower to later be used in my art is one way I weave my art and the everyday together. My creative process helps me understand the complexities, contradictions and injustices of the world we live in today."
