Diem Chau and her magical carving skills.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

“Chau’s current work drifts into new territory by exploring the periphery of the narrative, moments forgotten and faded, or too brief to retain.”

Diem Chau creates beautiful works of art through detailed carvings in crayons and pencils. I find her work to be so sweet and playful, I just want her to make more. Her most recent work is the Northwest Natives alphabet set, which is going to be exhibited at G.Gibson Gallery in Seattle. “Since the show is in the Pacific Northwest I thought I’d make a tribute to my neck of the woods. Every letter is paired with species that is native to the PNW (Pacific Northwest).”  To see more of her work you can visit her blog or her website.
