hi there

I'm Diane (they/them). I work on a really wide range of projects, but my favorite kind of work is creating resources and archiving/preservation. Topics of interest include: health & disability issues, technology, communication, and intersectional feminism.

Islandia illustration: a really trippy watercolor illustration that incorporates mountains, an old-fashioned, low-tech city, birds taking off, the face of a woman, some strange starburst/rainbow hybrid, hands outstretched, and a 1920s man on a backdrop of a modern city, with the American flag patterned into his clothing.
