I am Diane Farris, sometimes known as Dianekamikaze. I express myself through a variety of media. I do a radio show on WFMU - check here for archives: http://wfmu.org/playlists/DK or listen on Thursdays Noon-3pm on wfmu.org. The work you see here may be motivated by music, maybe not! I am a retired tattoo artist, and after decades of drawing other people's ideas, I thought I'd like to see what came out of me when left to my own devices.

Texture and All Of It
Sometimes I can just look at the bark of a tree for hours... OK, I never actually have hours to stare at the bark of a tree, yet am amazed at the complexity of something that we rarely notice. I love the texture, and trees are a large part of what inspires me to paint. Sometimes it's obvious, other times it's not. That's OK, there's no such thing as a bad looking tree, or a tree that looks funny; trees are living texture at their purest form, yay! This is what comes out of me...
