First and Last
This is me, reading at La Casa Azul Bookstore in Harlem.  No art today. I wrote a poem, instead. This poem is about the greatest loves of my life. Or at least, the ones I remember. As a girl in my late teens and early twenties, I did a lot of dating, but th...

Introduction
My name is Diana, and I am an illustrator, writer and blogger. I define my style as whimsical surrealism. 
I am a self taught artist, and mostly paint self portraits of myself in a whimsical manner, but am influenced by the artistic styles of Phillip Guston and Frida Kahlo.
My poetry and art usually go together, and I write poems that are inspired by my paintings. I am available to perform my poetry, and am currently working on a one woman show. 
Bragging rights
artist and mother of two beautiful girls.
