Alumna Diane Tate DallasKidd Thrives as Artist
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- She got her start as an artist when she graduated from SF State in 2004 with a degree in textile art. She then went to Nagoya, Japan, to do work study for a fourth generation dyer, Mr. Kuno. She studied shibori, which she described as a way of creating a pattern on a textile by resisting dye.
DallasKidd has stayed up all night working in a little apartment above the studio experimenting with materials and techniques. She described the space as a magical toy box, wanting to play with every toy she could find.
