- Diane Deyo
Diane Deyo has lived in Boulder, Colorado for over thirty years. A former professor of textile design at the University of Northern Colorado and Central Michigan University, her degrees include both a Bachelor and a Master of Fine Arts. She also was an art teacher in the Boulder Valley Schools for seventeen years.

Her current work makes use of a distinctive technique which she developed herself. Using a blend of paint, oil pastel and colored pencil, Diane creates her own unique interpretation of the natural world from which she derives her inspiration.

Diane’s art is included in many private collections throughout the United States.


- Caroline Douglas:
"I became enchanted with clay when I spent summers as a teen at Penland School of Crafts in the mountains of North Carolina. Then, for many years, I had a business called Cerantics and I traveled all around doing shows with my clay jungle gyms and fish bowls. Family life took over and I taught children for years as my children were growing up.

I received a BFA in ceramics at the University of North Carolina and have worked with clay for 30 years. Currently, my figurative sculptures are evocations of a dream world. Inspiration comes from mythology, fairy tales, and dreams, as well as the antics of animals and children. Publications include Ceramics: Art and Perceptions, Lark Books, The Shambhala Sun, and Better Homes and Gardens. My work is in the National Museum for Women in the Arts and many private collections."
