Dianna Fontes. Artist

c.1976

I am an Oregon Rain Baby. I've lived all over this state and I love this majestic place.

I am inspired by Curiosity, The Process, The Magic and All The Things (literally, all objects). My creative nature grew out of a childhood centered in making the most out of what you've got. My wild imagination and an uncanny knack for reuse have been mine since I was seven years old. I feel blessed to still have a tight grasp on both skill sets.I try my best to make art like that little girl did. So far, so good. 

CURRICULUM VITAE

ARTIST'S BIO

Artist's Statement

My Werk is rooted in the Practice of Process. There is no wrong way to create.

I hope my art will make an Impact in the world.

I make art to validate my need to collect and worship objects. I also hate to waste, anything.

The question on my mind most often is, "What is Art?".

I am always trying to determine the answer; if there is an answer.

I love to collaborate and make commissionted work out of what's left over.

Sometimes I teach but really it's about me learning more. All day, every day: make something. 

I am an Artist.
