Meet Diane Small: Pysanky Artist
Hello! My name is Diane Small and I am a pysanky artist. Pysanky means "to write" and this artform is thousands of years old. The designs are created on real egg shells using beeswax and dyes. It is a traditional Ukrainian art, though I am not Ukrainian! It is an artform that I came across and was immediately drawn to. I was initially self taught and have since attended workshops with other pysanky artists. My eggs are a mix of traditional and contemporary designs.
