Di is a full-time glass artist working from her purpose-built studio in Cambridge. Born in Auckland, 1971 and educated in Tauranga, Di was fortunate to discover her love of glass at the early age of 18. Since then, she has always created works in glass - firstly in leadlight as a hobbyist. Di completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (major Glass) in 2002 at RMIT University in Melbourne – this is where she discovered the method of lost wax glass casting and started to focus her work on the human form. Now most of Di’s work is focused on the human form, relationships and communication.
