Diane Emerson resides in the Village of Medford, NJ. She grew up in Pemberton and worked as an Art Educator for the Pemberton Township School District for 30 years. The artist works from her home studio and enjoys volunteering for the Medford Art Center.
The artist creates fossil-like clay impression tiles and mosaics that capture nature and its fleeting beauty. Diane loves that each plant, tree and flower have been assigned a special meaning and often uses them to convey a specific message through her work.
Diane’s photography reflects a love of detail in nature at both its peak and faded glory. Leaves once full of beauty become decorated with graceful patterns and wrinkled textures. Seed pods become small intricate sculptures and twigs are woven into baskets to hold the summer’s bounty.
Whether it’s a small cedar sprig impression or the tiny veins of a dried plumeria leaf, each season brings something new and exciting to capture in both mediums.
