View our October virtual exhibition 'Dusk to Dawn' by Steffie Wallace

Collection: Diane Connal

Working from her studio on the Kapiti Coast, Diane is strongly influenced by the ever-changing coastline near her homes.


Diane’s designs feature silver, copper and gold alongside found objects from the natural and urban landscapes. She enjoys creating works out of everyday objects and is particularly drawn to glass, stone, bone, ceramic, paper and rubber. Diane works on a design until it feels complete. Sometimes this is a quick process and other times, not so much. The challenge is the placement of the relative/chosen objects within a design. 

In recent years Diane has been exploring painting again which she has not done a lot of since her art school days. Nudes, portraits and abstract landscapes are favourites. 


Diane studied jewellery design at Sydney College of the Arts in the 1980s, returning to New Zealand in 1990. Now she moves between the two countries.
