A full-time professional storyteller and theatre artist for over twenty-five years, Diane has created numerous innovative performances for both adults and families. She is the winner of the first and only ORACLE award from the National Storytelling Network for Storytelling Excellence in the Northeast. Publisher’s Weekly called Diane “a storyteller in the grand tradition and virtuoso of the spoken word…an entire cast rolled into one!”
Performances range from Solstice Events rich in seasonal mythology to Celtic tales accompanied by long-time collaborator harpist Margot Chamberlain. Aside from classic adaptations of myths and legends, Diane has created numerous original pieces including the award-winning family fable Pattysaurus about a dinosaur maniac named Patty, Freddie and the Loon from Maine an upbeat rhyming tale of a New York cabbie who goes in search of a loon, Twilight of the Stones, a true ghost story about the standing stones of England and her most recent piece: One Thousand Doorways, which tells of her journey to gather the folktales of the Kurds of Turkey.
