About the Authors
Holly Knott (Diane's daughter) is a Finger Lakes, New York,
artist who could never call just one medium her own. After leaving
behind her seventeen-year career as an interactive systems designer
and usability testing specialist in New Jersey, she now works full
time in a wide variety of media, including art quilting, photography,
painting, and website and graphic design. Inspiration for her works
comes from her surroundings, including her love of architecture
old and new, rural landscapes and nature in all forms. She feels
that being involved in various art forms can only enhance an artist's
work because they are al interconnected.
Her painterly art quilts of landscape, nature and architectural
scenes are exhibited in juried quilt and art shows nationwide, have
won awards and are sold in local shops and arts centers. Her artwork
has appeared in several publications, including Quilting Arts
Magazine and in a 2007 calendar of works by women artists. She
has also been a contributing writer to Quilting Arts Magazine.
Holly lives with her husband, Paul Bokinz, and their two cats on
a small 'farmette' in the scenic Finger Lakes region of New York.
Diane Knott can't remember a time when she didn't want to
be an artist. Her earlier years, spent in the home of her grandparents,
inspired most of her kitchen and garden images. Today, she and husband,
George, live in the beautiful Pennsylvania mountains in a small
cottage overlooking lush hills and valleys, farms and woods. These
views, her home and garden and her growing years are constant sources
of inspiration material for her ever-growing portfolio. Today, as
a full-time watercolorist, she has her images produced on a variety
of licensed products that continue to grow in number. Diane licenses
her art exclusively through the energetic and highly successful
team of Linda McDonald, Inc. Diane has several successful fabric
collections with Clothworks Textiles and more are in the works.
Diane and George have two daughters, Holly and Danielle. Holly
is the co-author of this book and Danielle, a talented singer, is
currently an editor for a theological publishing company.
