“Diane is an incredibly talented writer, and a gifted communicator with a natural ability to listen, let go, and trust in the unseen, intangible truth within.” Ken Cervera
1. What I Do As An Artisan
As a wordsmith, I interpret and conceptualize the wants, needs and desires of others in communicating with their fellow human beings, be they to express, enlighten or engage. As an intuitive and student of lifeology, I write and design images from personal expression to share concepts in an effort to broaden the minds of those searching for their own truths and the means to create a better quality of life.
2. For Whom I Create
As a humanitarian, I write to share from both my own cultured awareness and for those who endeavor to integrate solutions into society and use their offering with integrity for the betterment of all involved. As a hobbyist life coach I share my perspectives and experiences, as well as complex ideas in lay terms as they relate to the human experience.
3. A Different Kind Of Artisan
As a lifeologist, I have studied many aspects of life to learn what makes us tick and bring to that my knowledge of how the way words are written can influence our thoughts toward positive actions. In student mode I found my own way to hone my interests over the years with non-credit university courses, certification and skills training I have pursued.

4. Why My Difference Matters To My Audience
As a philanthropist at heart, I love to share knowledge and products and often do from my own experience that contribute to a high quality of life for my fellow citizens so that the world can be a healthier place to live. I also love to play in the limitless world of graphic design where I have a way of seeing art in linoleum patterns and wood grains, as well as nature.
Due to my expansive interests and educational needs and desires over the years, my works are spread out over five websites that are specific to business, democracy, personal, lifeology and art, so some of the links below will be associated with those sites, as well as this one.

Book & Film Reviews
With some events I write elaborate reports and reviews as a way of reinforcing my connection to the expressions of life that others have brought to the world stage along the lines of Futurism, Global Awareness and Human Resourcefulness.

Warranty & Technical Writing Background
As a warranty administrator in the service department I learned to glean pertinent information from a work order and mechanic notes and put them into the simple formula of Complaint-Cause-Cure, which forms the base of a style I often use today in my writing.
As an extreme editor in publishing for the specific size and dimensions of the infoflip® print format in creating reference materials, I was tasked with heavily condensing volumes of information and images into a pocket-size reader-friendly field guide for a multitude of industries. It should be noted that the company created hundreds of infoflips that were projects assigned to individuals and these are a few examples of the scope of the projects that were assigned to me.
