Diana was born at the end of the great depression in the small village of Marchand Manitoba, Canada in 1940.  As a young child she moved east with her family to Windsor, Ontario to take advantage of the manufacturing boom at the beginning of the Second World War.  Her French-Canadian mother and Polish immigrant father and her 2 siblings relocated to Windsor where Diana lived until her passing in 2019.  

In the late 1970's Diana gave up a lucrative job in the welding sector to develop her artistic talent, applying to the University of Windsor's art department, where she graduated top of her glass on the dean's list.  Diana was a single mother of three, raising her children while spending most of her free time creating art.  She spent the 80's and 90's  in the gallery circuit making a name for herself in the art world.  Later on in her career she taught art privately, in her home studio.  Still spending her time creating and refining her artistic talent.  

Diana was as Complex as her Images.  A Kind and Creative Soul, Prolific in Design.
She has left a Body of Work Utterly Unique in Vision and Technique.  

It is the mission of this Website to bring her Visions to Light, allowing everyone to
enjoy the Beauty of a Body of Art Amazingly Original in Scope, Subject Matter, and Skill.
Original Artworks spanning five decades fill this collection.  Award-winning pieces
shown across North America attest to her Mastery. Working with a range of
mediums, using techniques she often invented, Diana enjoyed working into the wee
hours of the morning in a downtown warehouse studio, surrounded by other Artists.
Throughout her career, she spent time sharing her Talent and Knowledge of Art with
students, young and old. 

The first decades of her career were spent in Galleries, Garnering the attention of
the Press and the Art Community. The latter part of her career was spent at home
in the studio with Students and her Muse for the company doing what she loved...Creating.
A Half-Century retrospective of her ever-evolving style is on display thru the Online Gallery
