I approach art as a science. Every product I use is of the highest quality. Using epoxy with UV protections stops it from fading over time. My designs are created in unique patterns with different styles of pouring. Epoxy art can be made truly stunning with patience and precision.
Pouring and designing acrylic pieces is a talent all in its own. It differs greatly from epoxy in terms of working time and flow. There are many techniques that we use including the dirty pour, dutch pour, and swiping technique. Each style allows for different effects that turn out to be amazing pieces.

Dianne Aoki - Bio
I’m a visual artist originally from Tacoma, Washington, recently relocated back from California where I’ve spent half my life following a personal path of artistic collaboration, connection, and creativity.
My creative process begins with exploring interests-of-the-moment and conceptualizing a theme. From there I determine the medium I’ll use and a specific creative framework; sometimes my one-of-a-kind works are three-dimensional and will incorporate assemblage or collage, at other times it’s simply painterly representations. I create ‘collections’, immersing myself in different mediums and processes until it feels it’s time to move on to the next new body of work. Regardless of the medium, my expressed intention always holds the purpose of elevating the viewers emotional state…in a positive way.
