Writing

I am writing about my New Year’s Resolution to stop driving. Follow my adventures in cutting carbon emissions, living simply, and buying nothing new.

Art + Design

I am a fine artist, graphic designer and illustrator. I paint urban landscapes and small abstract compositions. I design logos and create hand drawn illustrations.

Pocket Press

I created the pocket sized printmaking press so everyone can press high pressure prints of many sizes without a traditional floor or tabletop printmaking press.

ABOUT ME

Hi.

I am Diana. I am a visual artist and graphic designer, and the creator of the pocket printmaking press. I live near Pasadena, CA. I am editing my book about living simply and writing about my ’22 New Year’s Resolution to stop contributing to and supporting carbon emissions. I plan to share my adventures, from running errands on a bicycle to setting my yard up for quail keeping, on my blog.

Graphic Design & Illustration

My graphic work is colorful and is largely hand drawn. I create logos, fonts, book covers, posters, patterns and even websites.

Pocket Press

I designed this mini press so all printmakers can press monoprints and etchings without a floor or tabletop press.

This handheld etching press prints larger than any other mini press. My presses have been featured in Pressing Matters Magazine and on Creative Bloq.

I’ve been painting the LA landscape for well over a decade now.

Other series include tongue in cheek hand painted signs, and my most recent abstract work.

depicts small painting with onion shaped figure with pink swath, and little anemone like growth on the inside. Very blue and green.

Support the Shop

I am a maker by nature, and I sell all of my creations in my shop. The selection ranges from fine art to functional kitsch.

Plugs!

I designed the poster and type for Imagemaker, a new documentary by Uma Sanasaryan on being an imagemaker for the Goddess Kali. See more of my illustration work here.

Passion Projects

Mini Portraits

Two of my artistic passions are drawing people and making art ownership accessible. My 5″ x 5″ mini portraits combine both.
