Diana grew up on a small horse ranch in Iowa. She was surrounded by animals, her mother's love of art, and her father's love of learning. Montana became a second home at an early age. Once she moved to Montana she was introduced to bronze foundries and became fascinated with sculpting and the Lost Wax Method of casting. Diana has worked in many departments of a foundry learning all aspects of casting, studying her sculpting and anatomy in her spare time. She has become a master patinuer to many artists and does her own patinas on her artwork. She specializes in dogs, equine, and wildlife.
