Maker in Residence: Barbara Dimond

Barbara Dimond

PPLD's current Maker/Artist in Residence, Barbara Dimond, considers herself a mixed media artist working in out of the box processes in collage, as well as paper mache. Originally from New York City, she has been living in Colorado Springs and New Mexico for her adult life. Trained as a handmade paper artist, she collects papers and fibers found, bought, and prepared. Barbara teaches art around the region and has been on the faculty of the Fine Arts Center Bemis School of Art for well over 20 years. She loves to share her artistic ideas and processes with her students. Barbara went to the City University of New York, getting a degree in art and art education. She then did her graduate work in Southwest Studies at the Colorado College.

She will be teaching classes throughout the Library District, as well as hosting studio hours at Library 21c, when you can talk to her about her work.
