Hi, my name is Diana. I'm an artist and illustrator born in Mexico and currently living and working in the U.S.A.
I love to be able to make ideas into reality. There's no simple project, personal or commissioned, in all of them I do my best to create a wonderful piece that speaks to my audience. Innocence, curiosity and freedom are the main ingredients of my work, occasionally playing with darker corners of the imagination to portray deeper meanings. I find inspiration in horses, my favorite creature in the world, but on mythology, fantasy art and illustration, photography and pop culture as well.
My work is made in traditional mediums. Graphite is my favorite as I find great joy in drawing, but all artwork requires different ingredients to make them unique, and for this, I also enjoy the challenge of working with oils, acrylics, ink and any material my piece needs.
I love every aspect of what I do. Creating pieces that speak to friends and strangers, that allows them to dream, hope and stay strong. There's nothing more fulfilling that knowing my work brings light to people's lives.
On 2018, I was selected along with 50 other Mexican creatives from Mexico and the USA to be part of #TheMexicanXInitiative created by artist John Picacio and funded by incredible people supporting the representation of Mexican and Mexican-American artists in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy world by attending WorldCon76 in San Jose, California in August 2018.
