Diane Maclean is a sculptor and environmental artist who often produces public sculptures and commissions, in response to place or a set theme.

Her works can take on many different forms, but are connected by their use of materials and focus on light, colour and movement.

Maclean is often inspired by the earth’s elements and the shapes that occur within the natural environment.
