Diana also obtained a Certificate in Photography from Ryerson University and is pursuing a career in a life-long passion.

Diana’s portfolio is as diverse as her cultural and educational background, discovering the world through her lens.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT: My photographs express the different facets of myself and my curiosity of the world around me. I am especially drawn to the abstract and look to capture light, shapes and colour. Recently my lens has turned to what is physically close to me, capturing nature in my garden and during my neighbourhood walks. I have also begun experimenting with photoshop and transforming images where my imagination takes me. My photography travels down many different paths, just like my life.
