Diana Biscaioli: Finding our own child through textile artFrancesca Palange
She is an art therapist living and working in the province of Viterbo, Italy. A hand-crafter who knows and enjoys what her geography offers: forests, hills, rocks and her beloved animals, particularly goats. While studying, Diana came across felt and learned needle felting, and since then, she never separated from this technique, which is now what she teaches and her everyday work.
She calls herself a textile artist, a creative spirit specialised in a technique that allows her to produce art dolls as well as characters for toys or for theatre. Her artistic side of felting is generally linked to the playful element she incorporates to her work. Puppets, dolls, toys and different figures emerging from her imagination are her passion together with teaching and felting with colleagues.
If you want to know about the technique and materials that Diana utilises for her beautiful and detailed work, have a look at the article in the latest issue of No Serial Number Magazine, the Spring Issue 2017. Besides lovely images and ideas, you can hear the artist’s own words about the magic world of art, therapy and play.
The latest issue of the print magazine packed with interviews and features on eco and heritage artists and artisans is available now.
