Diane Goldie is an artist who works in textile and paint, making wearable art (clothes / accessories), home furnishings and embroidered paintings. She also has a large collection of paintings and drawings from life and soft sculpture as well as a small collection of very weird crocheted dollies.
Trained as a fine artist 30 years ago, Diane spent the last 25 years working as a puppeteer but has now focused on the thing that really drives her: making art. Currently working as the supplier of Fashionable Fashionista artist Sue Kreitzman’s fabulous kimono style coats, Diane’s signature style of wearable art is hand painting and bold applique on african batik fabric, creating a vibrant and bold colour style statement. Diane’s mission is to elevate craft and let it sit side by side with art.
