Dia is the owner of Twisted Urban Fiber Arts, an accomplished indie dyer, spinner, crocheter, and weaver. She has taught at the Greenville Center of Creative Arts in Greenville, South Carolina and has organized two fiber art gallery showcases at Greenville Technical College’s Benson Campus Art Gallery in Greenville, South Carolina.
Dia produces a monthly video series titled “The Inspire Blend Series,” where she chooses a picture and creates a fiber representation of that picture through colors. Her goal is to use her business as a platform to discuss the importance of supporting mental health through self-care, help individuals develop their creative expression, and connect with other fiber enthusiasts worldwide. Dia believes that we have more commonalities than differences and that fiber arts can help bridge the gap between culture and diversity as we discover and nurture the common threads that connect us.
