Diane Itter

(American, born 1946, died 1989)

Late artist Diane Itter Healy created fiber artworks. Her works are characterized by their bright colored linen thread and her use of hand-knotting techniques. She noted, "By limiting myself to one technique and one material I am forced to think of imagery, not any technical tricks or gimmicks." She received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1969. She received a Master of Fine Arts degree in fiber and textile design from Indiana University in Bloomington in 1974. A retrospective exhibition of her artworks was held at the American Craft Museum in New York City in 1995.
