My name is Diana Gibson and I have been an artist since I was a child. I have studied studio art, art education, doctoral studies, as well as art therapy. Working many years in the pediatric hospital and hospice settings, I have discovered the art form of life-casting and it became an instant passion of mine. We all experience those moments in time of complete bliss and warmth with the ones that we love and I wanted to find a way to capture those moments with an art form that could be touched and held for years to come. Life-casting has become a way for me to give the ultimate gift to families and couples that they can now cherish. The pieces that I create are a three-dimensional sculpture of the life that they share with one another that can be displayed and remembered always.
Each creation is custom made to fit the family or couple that is involved in the life-casting process. I will come to your choice of setting and walk you through the process step by step in order for your casting to be exactly what you have imagined. I return to my studio with the mold and cast the finished piece in your choice of finished color. Choices include, but are not limited to: bronze, copper, silver, platinum, pearl, and gold.
I pride myself on being an "out of the box" thinker and I look forward to the challenge of creating the perfect sculpture for you and your family. I have helped families create these in some of the hardest times as well as some of the most joyous times of their lives. Let me capture that moment in time for you and your family forever.
Creation of a three dimensional sculpture of a moment in a persons life that is casted in hydrostone and then painted with a finish of your choice. Please contact me for a price estimate for your session.
Holding hands has been a sign of affection since time began and there is so much meaning in how you hold your loved one's hand. All the more reason to capture this forever in a life-casting. Couples sessions include the artist coming to the location of your choice, creating the mold of the couple's hands, and creating the cast with chosen finish to be returned upon completion.
Your family is one of a kind and your love for one another is unbreakable. The warmth shared between children and their parents can truly be seen most when they touch. Capture this warmth and love in your life-casting. Family sessions include the artist coming to the location of your choice, creating the mold of the the family member's (up to 5) hands and creating the cast with chosen finish to be returned upon completion. Additional family members can be added for an additional charge.
There is nothing sweeter than the tiny hands and feet of a newborn baby. They will never be this small again. Capture this moment with a life-casting of your choice of either your baby's hands, feet, or both in your choice of finish. Hospital visits are also available.
Single sessions are tailored to those who would only like a cast of one person's hands. The artist would arrive at the location of your choice, create the cast in your chosen finish and return it to you upon completion.
Protect your life-casting in a shadow box with glass and display it in your home. Depending on shape and style of casting, prices vary.
For life-castings that stand upright, a wooden base can add a elegant touch to the display. Your choices of finish include, black, white, oak, honey, cherry, and cedar.
Remember your casting always with a video documentation of the whole process. Choose your favorite song for the video and share the memory for years to come.
