Kristin Diener

Kristin DienerThis dedicated artist recently went full-time in her career as an artist, making metal jewelry and teaching the craft to others. Her serendipitous path led her to enroll in a Jewelry Making class at a small Mennonite College in Ohio, where her instructor became her first mentor. Kristin says of her first encounter with creating metal jewelry, ?I liked what I was able to make and the thoughts I was able to achieve.? Kristin was hooked immediately when she discovered the torch, its flame and the tools of jewelry metalworking in her youth; she had found her calling. Kristin earned a Master of Fine Arts from Bowling Green University in Ohio. Then, on to Missouri where she began teaching fine arts classes at a small college. Her questing spirit later took her to Boston, Massachusetts, to a job she loved, teaching at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. Kristin supplemented her income with residential and commercial painting in Boston and then her own house painting business when she came to Albuquerque. Recently, Kristin took the plunge and is now a full time artist and teacher with her own studio. Her work is selling in galleries in New Orleans and Albuquerque. She brings her MFA and professional teaching background to Continuing Education at UNM. In 2004, this unique individual began challenging Continuing Education students with her own brand of bold, unconventional and whimsical artistic vision, rooted in the solid fundamentals of a traditional jewelry-making craft. Her classes have inspired a following from the start. Like Kristin with her own first jewelry instructor years ago, many of her students are very loyal to her instruction and repeat the advanced class to pursue their own artistic visions. The Beginning Jewelry / Metals course starts with a series of sterling silver rings. Students learn to size, texture, chase, and form, then bezel-set a cabochon stone. ?I like teaching people of all different levels. Most have their own ideas of what they want to do

Ming Franz

Ming FranzMing Franz was born in jungle region of Taiwan. As a child, she had to hike many miles to school; she continued hiking and is a strong hiker today. Because of my love for hiking, she also developed a love for nature, especially waterfalls, streams, rivers, trees, birds. As a result, painting landscapes comes naturally. Ming started painting when she was eight years old and later studied with masters of traditional Chinese painting, attending the National Art Institute of Taiwan, and continuing her art studies in the United States. In the early 90s, Ming was so inspired when she saw the splash ink paintings of world-renowned artist Master Chang Dai-Chein that she immediately wanted to attempt her first creation. She lives in Edgewood, NM, with her husband Ben and my two dogs, Missy and Gizmo. Ming has a home studio where she gives private lessons and workshops in both traditional Chinese painting and Splash Ink painting. She also teaches at the New Mexico Art League. Ming travel teaches at the Houston Art Expo, Gallery 408 in New Mexico and Silicon Valley Asia Art Center in California.
