Karen Fry wrote in TAA newsletter profile, 2005: Diana majored in Drawing and minored in Art History when she got her BFA. But her work today has expanded to include photography (particularly cyanotype photonegative photography), intaglio etching printmaking, and solvent transfers (ala Robert Rauschenberg). She enjoys the experimental and has lots of curiosity about processes. Because of this fascination, she usually has many projects going on at once, pulling in different directions. Her website  has many more examples of where this exploration has taken her. She wants to continue to explore printmaking processes. Diana always carries a sketchbook with her wherever she goes. And she loves journaling. She takes notes, sketches and paints in her journals, especially when she’s on trips, to preserve the experience. She even paints watercolor postcards to send to friends while in her travels. Diana was one of the artists who won a YSU Penguin commission last year. Hers was “Universal Penguin Has Stars in Its Eyes” and is now outside the YSU Planetarium. She is interested in freelance illustration projects and fine art commissions. Her illustrations can be found in “Condensed Matter and Other States of Mind” (a book of poetry by Doug Fowler).
