About Diana McKinnon
Diana McKinnon is a textile artist from South East London who is a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen Guild and regularly exhibits in London Galleries with them. Diana creates her artwork from photographs, she captures the beauty of the English countryside through building up layers of sheer fabrics and handmade silk paper. This is used as a base to work with free motion embroidery. Diana feels that capturing the detail of light and depth is crucially important in order to allow a viewer to feel they can 'walk into the picture'. The freedom of the silk paper edge creates this illusion of infinity.
