Diane Cadrain

My first career was in legal research and writing. My second, since 2015, is in fiber art.


I use cloth, wool, and yarn to create images, mostly landscapes, that take their inspiration from the transcendent beauty of nature, always the same yet always changing.


Tolstoy said, "Love all nature. Love every leaf," and that spirit animates my work.
