Diana was born and raised in a small Lithuanian village. She is a graduate of Vilnius Academy of Arts (2006) where she achieved a BA honours in Fine Arts. Diana moved to London in 2006, where she has been actively participating in group and solo exhibitions in UK.
Diana uses oil painting as her primary medium to create expressive, semi-abstract paintings. Her inspiration comes from observation of surrounding and nature. In the latest work, Diana experiments with new shapes and combines them together in a various ways, so paintings interconnect with each other and create a visual story on the wall.
