The art making always felt like a positive healthy meditative & therapeutic release to her. Creating art is such a fantastic healthy way to  express thoughts and feelings & this inspired her to want to help others do the same. Diana is a very strong advocate of bringing more awareness to benefits of therapeutic arts. Diana is currently running art services at her vibrant and cozy art studio located in OC near the beach in Newport.  Diana truly loves working with children, so, in addition, she also teaches art at various schools (youth of all ages) in & around Orange County & runs volunteer groups including adults dealing with Dementia, Alzheimer's, & ALS.  Art, along with music & play therapies has proven to help so many of the individuals she has worked with over the years in her extensive experience in working with youth, adults, various populations within the mental health field, & bringing together families/groups, since 2002.
