I am Diane-Blair Goodpasture, but my art name is Artemisia Dioni, after my Greek counterpart and the great Artemisia Gentileschi. Dioni is based on a mispronunciation of Diane. I am self-taught. Having a creative outlet has always been my refuge, a kind of therapy for me.
My favorite medium is stained glass. My other media include acrylic painting, polymer clay, and designing needlepoint, handmade/handsewn dolls, bags. and pillows.
Some of my biggest inspirations have been: my education, life events (good and bad), Biblical women, mythology, and antiquity. I also like making celebrities out of stained glass. Tiffany, Picasso, Chagall, and Artemisia Gentileschi are a few of my favorite artists.
Thank you for checking out my art. Feel free to send me a message. I am available for possible commissions and shows. I live in Nashville. I always love to hear what viewers think of my work. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks again for visiting.
