Born: 1963, Berkeley, California
Has practiced at Creative Growth since 1983

A multidisciplinary artist, Dinah Shapiro has been drawing, crocheting, and sculpting in Creative Growth's Studio for over twenty-five years. Her style, which she describes as 'freestyle art,' is full of detail; her characteristic line quality is like an arranged spiderweb. She depicts people, animals, plants, and 'situations' primarily with black ink on paper, but in the medium of ceramics these same objects become brightly colored, totemic, and almost cubist in their multitude of perspectives. Dinah is committed to the process of creation as a cathartic release, and this dedication to her practice is also evident in her textile works. Dinah is a prolific knitter and crocheter, creating her own complex and entangled patterns and designs that she explains best herself: "It's all yarns together, going in many directions.”
