When looking at Diane Lemire’s works in felt, with their strong textural quality, one cannot resist making a link to her period as a sculptor. Diane has devoted her practice to the material of felt since 2007. In this transition from hard to soft materials, her interest in the found object has remained a constant.”
Her wearable art is quite stunning and she incorporates elements into the designs making her scarves, shawls and jackets the type of one-of-a-kind that will have friends asking about it. Diane does classy, funky or fun – your choice but all are exquisite pieces of art.
Diane also does mixed media, incorporating various media including textile.. Her artworks almost always tell a story and are humorous and light. You have to see Diane’s pieces in person to really appreciate the fine craftsmanship that goes into each one.
