Diane D. Mason
Tea for Two, bronze, 5.5″ x 9″ x 10″
As a sculptor of animals, Diane’s work is influenced by her strong academic background in both animal behavior (ethology) and anatomy… but also interpreted with a touch of whimsy and a generous dose of anthropomorphism. Her sculpture is found in public and private collections throughout the country, Canada, and Europe. She is proud to be a long-time member of both the AWA and the Society of Animal Artists (SAA).
My world revolves around animals, and always has. I am constantly observing the wildlife that is ever-present around our home in the foothills of Colorado for behaviors which might inspire a sculpture, or photographic opportunities which might inspire a painting or scratchboard. My involvement in the American Women Artists and the international Society of Animal Artists evolved from the desire to share my passion for animals with others through my artistic creations. Getting involved in these premier art organizations has proven to be one of the greatest joys of my life and a continual source of inspiration – and the friendships that have resulted are among my greatest treasures.
Master-Signature Member of American Women Artists; Signature Member of the Society of Animal Artists
Winning the Purchase Award has such enormous significance for me, it’s every artist’s dream to be in a museum and my work, Lee’s Ferry Landing, will be at the Tucson Desert Art Museum for as long as I live. I’m so thankful to the American Women Artists for that opportunity.”
