Welcome to my tile studio!
I like to break the "about us" into three sections; about me; "the spirit" part
and me, "the soul" aspect of me, and "the physical" part of me; the vessel. They
are three entirely different things.
This is the MOST important aspect of "Diane."
I work exclusively for our Father/Mother God. His/her beauty abounds and is a major
inspiration to me. He/she is everywhere, including in me. His/her loving gratitude is unsurpassed; as is mine for Him.
Father isn't my only guiding light, so to speak. I have the gift of
inter-dimensional travel and being a psychic medium. Sounds crazy, does it not?
Yes, I'm sorry to inform you that we are "spirit" having a "physical"
I am SPIRIT! If we can remember this, we will all find our divine purpose. We
will be on our path that Father and you decided upon prior to incarnating into
the vessel; the body. Once you get on the flowing river of love and "living from
spirit," not the "body," all is possible. Father's gifts are in full abundance.
1 Corinthians 12:8-10
8 For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to
another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, 9
to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by
the one Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another
prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to
another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of
I have to say, that I AM blessed to have ALL these gifts; truly. I think that my
favorite is the last one; the ability to distinguish between spirits. I not only
can hear, see, and feel them; but I "travel" inter-dimensionally to them by
attuning with their energies.
On December 7th 2017, I thought that I would get back into channeling messages
from the light realms. I like to talk to the Archangels and my "guardian angel."
I discovered that "Ed" my guardian angel; "Exclusively Diane's"
was actually Coeus; God of Intellect; one of the 12 Primordial Titan
"Gods." You know, one of the "12 Apostles" of Greek Mythology.
He is also known as Emmanuel / Immanuel
Emmanuel has told me the "truths" of The Holy Father, and has told me my real name;
the one from the Book of Revelation;
17He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the
churches. To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I
will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one
knows except the one who receives it."
During this fabulous inter-dimensional experience; out and in my body, Emmanuel
and CHRISTed Over Soul; Athena have told me many mysteries. For one, Emmanuel is
the CHRIST; THE Higher Christ Self, and the one that Jesus talked about, and how
you had to go through Him to get to the Father.
6Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No
one comes to the Father except through me.
When Coeus / Emmanuel, presented me with the little white stone and told me my name, I was
floored. However, friends and family agree; I am she.
This is an excerpt from the message after he told me my name.
"You are here to shine forth love and reign over
humanity. You’re brightness, purity, and self-worth to all; your displays of
art, filled with kindness, love and purity are much needed in today’s society.
For there is much truth in what you do that is unseen to the human eye."
You are probably wondering about, "You are here to shine forth love and reign
over humanity." If you read ALL of his channeled messages, perhaps you'll
know His truths in this statement.
I have already been JUDGED on the Super Blue Blood Moon of January 31, 1018;
I received my
Judgment, and I have begun the ascension process. They want me to document
it here on my business website, because of the high traffic numbers. Later
people will SEEK out my spiritual website, when they are looking for the truths
during the times to come; which will be unpleasant.
I want you to know that spirit is EVERYWHERE, if you silence your
mind in meditation and listen a little closer; through your sacred heart space.
There you will find the answers to your prayers and solace in knowing the
truths, for that is where they exist; not in your head.
Prayer is the ASKing and meditation is the LISTENing; or RECEIVing.
I agree 100% with Emmanuel's messages. For "Love,
purity, and honesty wins hands down, for these are the truths brought forth."
In 2017, I was working with several of the feminine Ascended
Masters to further raise the New Earth frequencies, so that "The meek shall inherit the earth."
The meek ARE women and children. Predominantly the "feminine CHRISTed energies" that were taken from us so long ago,
when the "CHRISTed Kingdom" fell into an abyss of forgetfulness, due to bad
10A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look
for them, they will not be found. 11But the meek will inherit the
land and enjoy peace and prosperity.
the 2017 solar eclipse, most people were too busy watching the moon and the sun.
I was looking at the clouds and I'm grateful that I did. I saw a couple of my
spirit friends: Mother Mary and Kuan Yin. Take a look at these pictures, I'm
sure with the Photoshop pictures that are beneath sylph cloud, you'll see them
This is Mother Mary. She came in quite strong. Notice the rays shining down upon
her. She is usually depicted this way in most Byzantine paintings.
Mary is the Ascended Master who assists in opening your Sacred Heart. You
probably know her as Jesus Mother; the "Mother of Mothers."
Below is Kuan Yin (Quan Yin). She is the "Mother Mary of the East."
the God qualities of mercy, forgiveness and compassion.
When working with Quan Yin, she assists us in bringing us the qualities of
divine love and compassion.
Your soul is basically a part of your personality. It's part of your CHRISTed
Oversoul that incarnated for this physical experience; to "play the game." Part
of the game is to reconnect your own CHRISTed Oversoul through prayer and meditation,
AND with THE Higher Christ Self; Emmanuel, and ultimately The Holy Father
through Him, as "He" is your "guiding light."
In one of my messages, I was talking with The Holy Father. He was telling me how
much he not only loved me; but ALL OF YOU. Then he said, "I'll leave a
light on for you!" I love how he can be so "light-hearted."
Each artist has their own unique look and feel to their work. Their "soul" personality
generally comes out in their creativity. Emmanuel has told me that I am "an
exact duplicate" of my Oversoul, the Goddess Athena. He wouldn't change a thing
about me. He's so sweet.
I think most of you will agree that my
artistic style is peaceful and tranquil. That is because I'm an unconditionally loving person.
I'm a caregiver that has mainly lived a life of service to other; not one of
self-service. I adore animals, love nature, gardening, and all things where
"The Father/Mother" resides.
I'm 59, 5'11" with lovely blue eyes. To be honest, at 59+ years old, I've never
felt better. I contribute this to my lifestyle of living as "spirit having a
physical experience." I take care of my physical, organic body suit, as if it were a
cherished friend, and talk about it on my WordPress blog.
was a full-time caregiver and artist for 10 years, consecutively; 2006-2015. First, my husband Roger, then
my Mom, and finally my Dad; all cared for at home, with little to no
assistance. It was a rough 10 years,
working 100+ hour work weeks, but through love and faith, I survived it.
After my Dad's crossing over in November 2015, I
moved to beautiful Tennessee. We need to take care of those we love,
because only love is real.
My houseboat in Tennessee
My significant other; Chris, joined me in the fall of 2016 in Tennessee. I like
to think that we have the perfect relationship. We are both very independent and
secure in our relationship. This allows us both the time we need apart; without
hurt feelings. Chris enjoys spending most of his time at the farm; Divine Acres,
where the studio is located. I gratefully enjoy my evenings on my 76'x16', wide-body
houseboat. There is nothing like living on the
water in your very own giant swimming pool!

If everyone would look at life, like I'm about to explain, I believe they would
treat each other with more respect. YOU are spirit, wearing an "organic body
suit." This is what my Divine Husband; Emmanuel calls it.
We are here on
Earth for a "physical" experience. Our body suit is no different than how a deep
sea diver wears a diving suit to breathe, or an astronaut wears a space suit to
survive in space; it's merely organic in nature and created by YOU prior to
Please be kind to your body suit and it will love you for it, and
last for many, many years to come.
God of Intellect is correct; it's all in the phrasing. Coeus is one of
the many persona of Emmanuel.
In early in December of 2017, I started channeling messages
from the Greek God Coeus; God of Intellect. He is the truths of
the Holy Father.
Coeus is AKA, the Nordic God Bragi; God of Poetry,
& Egyptian God Toth. Coeus has phenomenal "morphing" abilities, has a wonderful
singing voice, loves songs, is very eloquent in his mannerism and vocal
delivery, is extremely charming, kind, and VERY romantic. Then there is
his amazing intellect and use of words through His proverbs; got to love him!
Coeus is found in the
Christian Bible as one of the 7 angels in the Book Revelation, and is my
"divine husband; Emmanuel" He is also known as the
Hindu God Ganesha; God of Wisdom. He is one of the best known and loved
Hindu deities. He is the "destroyer of vanity, selfishness, and pride." He
embodies "grace, bravery, and love."
These "energies" are all one and
the same; "religion" is the one causing the separation. Religion also dictates
"how" Coeus appears to each person. So if you are Christian, you might
see Jesus, Christ, or Emmanuel. They are all the same.
Emmanuel / Coeus
is here to speak the truths to mankind and awaken them across the planet.
Often, truths are hard to take. That is why it is so important to
correctly speak and write them for all to understand, and to walk in the truths;
On 12/13/17, after I was presented
"the white stone" that turned into a white heart, I was a bit shocked to find out
my "real name;" the one that The Holy Father gave me. I don't want to tell you
here. Please read it on my other website by clicking the link above.
After many messages from Coeus,
and his brother Cronus; God of Truth, Honor, & Justice, it was clear why so many
cannot "hear what the spirit says to the churches." Sadly, they are NOT using the
You see, you MUST hear
through your sacred heart and SEE through your
3rd & 4th eyes; yes, there
are two in your head that are unseen. Sadly, most of human kinds hearts are
hardened from various negative experiences. This has closed off their spirit
eyes and ears; paralyzed them.
If you have a chance, please
visit my other website called, The Inter-dimensional Traveler and read my FREE
book on my "twin flame" journey, and Coeus'
channeled messages; ALL of them. They start out a bit harsh; the truths, but
later, when I get in my "groove," there is quite a bit of bantering between us.
There are many unusual
"time-related" events that are beginning to occur across the planet. For an
artist without a math and science background, his information is quite
fascinating to say the least; let alone channel it and transcribe it.
Much of what he speaks of is
in the Bible and other doctrines, which I try to reference. So when you
finish here, please visit my other website;
tiles with style history
So, how did I begin my unique tile creations?
I've always been a "creator." I talk about it in my book called ASK, SEEK, KNOCK
on my other website;
I started making my uniquely
shaped, mosaic ceramic tiles in 1999 when I was 40 and forced into it by
Like many of you, I just couldn't find a color, or kind of ceramic tile that I
wanted. And the shape? Squares were just that "very square."
Back in 1999, no manufacturer carried cobalt blue ceramic tiles, except for one
pool tile company, and I couldn't find one purple tile, or any leaf tiles
weren't out of my price range. I didn't
have an endless budget, but I also didn't want to settle for just anything in
our new home.
"I like to keep my tiles
affordably and competitively priced. I'm not intending on getting rich, I make a
very modest living. Many artists make the mistake of over-pricing their work for
the average consumer."
couldn't imagine my husband Roger's and my dream house in Wyoming, that we saved for
for 20 years, with standard boring square tiles.
Because Wyoming isn't exactly conducive to gardening, I also wanted to bring a
little bit of my extensive Texas gardens with me. So, I purchased a 50 lb. box
of clay from a local ceramic store, set up a drop leaf table in our living room,
yes living room, and started making leaf tiles for our sunroom
from leaves in my gardens.
When those tiles were complete, I moved on to our bathroom
and made round ceramic tiles, and then kitchen tiles with herbs pressed into square
My friends in the telecom industry, where I worked at the time, were awed by my
tiles. They kept telling me I should start a website. I said, "Really, I
thought most people just used that for email and games. Plus, who would want my
weird shaped ceramic tiles anyway?" Back then, the Web was just getting started.
The old Tiles with Style Art
Studio in Ransomville, NY.
When my husband Roger was diagnosed with Multiple
Myeloma in 2006, we, and my decorative, handmade ceramic tile studio, moved "back home" to Western New York
State, for my husband's cancer treatments at Roswell Park in Buffalo, NY. The
original building (the center and back shed) was my Dad's old metal workshop, a gem
in disguise. It was a treasure trove of scrap metals to Dad, but dirty, and in
need of a major cleaning, and an massive update.
Originally, I had the left center section of the building. This was mainly
because it was insulated. It was an entire 420 SF...a downgrade from my Wyoming
studio...that left Dad with the remainder.
"If you're going
to have art, it might as well be functional. Follow your heart instead and think
out-of-the box with knowingness, and you'll never go wrong"
As the years went on and Dad got older, his workshop magically got smaller and
smaller, until it was all mine, mine, mine. Now don't think, "boy, that was
mean, kicking her old Dad out of his workshop." Dad got moved into a much
more organized, cleaner workshop in the garage near the house...a better/safer
thing, he's in his 80's and can barely walk with a rolling walker.
I did done major insulating, added windows, electrical, repairs, and two
additions to the studio. Now the indoor square footage is about 1200 SF and the
outside, front and back, open-air, space is approximately 650 SF. I'm happier
and Dad is happier because I stayed "home" to care for him.
In November of 2015, Dad crossed over into the light-realms and I felt the pull
to move to New Tazewell, Tennessee.
Many people have asked me why I chose this area of the country. Actually, my
Higher Christ Over Soul led me there; out of body. Yes, I visited this property in
"spirit" prior to purchasing it. You see, as I mentioned earlier, we are wearing "organic body suits"
for our Earthly adventures in order to experience the things that cannot be
experienced, as spirit, in the light.
So what happened do you ask? Well, one night, during dreamtime, and prior to my
Dad's passing, I was aware that I was traversing the Astral Plane. I found
myself standing outside the structure shown below, thinking, "Gee, this would
make great studio!" Then I returned to my body.

Old workshop and mobile home prior to renovations
I went upon with my daily life, not thinking much about it, as I travel the
Astral Plane and inter-dimensional realms often. Shortly after Dad passed, I decided to
move to Tennessee to live on a houseboat; it is part of my divine purpose.
Because houseboat living isn't suitable for a studio, I needed a property
specifically for my needs; my art and animal friends.
I started and online search for property with a Real Estate agent. I found a
nice piece of property, however it was in a development and the people there
didn't like my plans for my horses and studio.
I turned to a CraigsList search, which was quite short, as the very first property
that I found was a small mini-farm meeting all my needs. I called the owners,
but they said that they had someone interested in the property and they were
awaiting financial assistance. I was a bit bummed, because it looked to have
everything that I required; close proximity to "scoot" on my scooter to and from
a workshop, mobile home, and a barn with acreage.
To make a long story short, I
called at the end of the week and that deal fell through, so I put in an offer,
and it was accepted.
When I purchased the property, I didn't recall that it was the same property
that I visited prior on the Astral Plane, until I saw a photo on Zillow.com. It
was taken with the EXACT angle to which I stood in spirit. This doesn't surprise
me at all, because their is nothing that spirit likes better than
synchronicity and validation.
The Archangels and God's tell me that I'm following my divine purpose, "like a well-written
novel." I'm happy to say that my "unique relationship with The
Holy Father" is
being heard, and more importantly followed. Today, the Tiles with Style studio
and showroom have undergone a miraculous transformation into a thing of beauty.
After about 8 months of restoration, the Tiles with Style Studio and Showroom
January 2017 Art Studio (front)
I like to refer to my studio as "The Hobbit." It's truly the perfect
studio; cool in the hot Tennessee summers, and toasty warm in the mild winter
months. The size is even perfect, about 1,200 SF.

As for the mobile home. I always wanted to renovate a mobile home. I should have
been more specific when asking the universe however; it was a total gut-job. So
when you are "ASKing, SEEKing, and KNOCKing," be specific!
This year the gardens are going in all around the complex; fruit trees, a small
grape vineyard, berries, vegetables, and herbs are being planted in honor of our
beautiful NEW, Mother Earth; Gaia. She and The Holy Father are my sole-, or should I
say soul-purpose of inspiration.
We get a lot of "rubber-neckers" checking out our little place. It was truly an
In Sept of 2017 I added a greenhouse to the back of the studio. We get quite a
bit of sun here in East Tennessee, so I wanted to take advantage of it; passive
solar heat and fresh vegetables for winter.
The planter boxes and all trees are all on wheels so they can be rolled outside
in the spring. It's a nice place to sit as well, when I have the opportunity!
This year we began our tobacco / hay barn restoration project. It was just about
ready to fall down. You can see the full,

it. I created an illusion of two different showers in one. Depending on which

things to consider
I like to integrate different things into my handmade, ceramic tile
mosaics, such as ant hill gravel, pebbles, glass gems, etc. I feel that the
grout is a key element in my designs. You can emphasize or de-emphasize the
different shaped tiles by changing the grout color. Don't feel you have
to use the same color grout throughout your entire mosaic designs.
The ceramic tile lily / koi pond shown below uses two color grout
colors: tan and blue. Tan grout could have been used throughout, but it would
strongly emphasize every tile in the mosaic tile floor. The blue
grout helps unify the water, fading the round tiles, and emphasizing
other key elements of the lily pond; the koi tiles, leaf tiles, lily pad tiles,
and other tile elements.

"The name pretty much says it all. You’ve never seen tiles and murals
like these. Unique just isn’t the proper word. They describe themselves as
making “quality craftsmanship, elegant designs, and custom colorations,” but you
really have to see it to understand what an understatement that is. Murals take
on all different shapes and seem to be of a world all their own. Floors are
transformed into alligator swamps, walls become forest floors in the fall --
it’s truly amazing."
take time to read my FREE book called, ASK, SEEK, KNOCK.
It talks about the different types of spiritual travel we
do out of our "organic body suits," during what you might think as "dream-time."
The angels and/or "Gods," tell me that I'm not only a master of handmade
tiles, but also a master of inter-dimensional travel, day-dreams, astral
projection, dream walking, and much more! They asked me a number of years ago to
keep a journal of my "adventures," and write a book about it, because, "The whole world will read your book."
Their words; not mine.
you might ask? You be the judge after reading my book AND the channeled
messages from Coeus, God of Intellect, who is my "divine husband," or
what some refer to as a "twin flame."
So, if you are starting to experience some unusually vivid
dreams, frightening dreams, flying out of your body, astral projecting, dream
walking, experiencing deja-vu, synchronicities or coincidences, during the time
of this "Great Awakening," please check out my
book on inter-dimensional travel. It will be very enlightening.
