Diana was an art teacher but when she retired she was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. She joined a patchwork and quilting class as a therapy and has obviously found this a rewarding way of displaying her artistic abilities. Many of these works of art have been prize winners in various quilting shows.
Some of her work is influenced by Harry Brockway's work. Harry is her son, a carver and wood engraver. Some of his work will be familiar to any who have visited Herefordshire Museum and Art Gallery.
The Threads exhibition runs until 2 June 2012 at the Cynon Valley Museum & Gallery, Depot Road, Aberdare.
