This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast, I have an interview with Diana Fayt. With a background in painting and drawing, Diana uses scrimshaw techniques to create rich compositions filled with folkloric images and symbols of personal identity. As the child of immigrants, travel, maps, and mythologies have been a large part of her creative life. Through a lifetime spent traveling the world, she has acquired a unique sense of the role culture has in shaping personal narratives. She lives in San Francisco where she maintains a studio and exhibits her work across the United States.
In the interview we talk about life in San Francisco, her approach to symbols and storytelling, and the development of her online e-course The Clayer. You can find more about her work at www.dianafayt.com.
