Diana W

Diana Viacheslavovna Walsworth’s inspiration for her artwork comes from her love of the wild outdoors, where she frequently has unique encounters with animals. She has been chased by sea lions, circled by a great white shark, gobbled with turkeys, and strolled in the forest next to a rattlesnake. Diana seeks to share her experiences, love for life, and appreciation for nature through her artwork.

Diana has invented her own painting process, where she dabs acrylic paint onto her canvases using a sewing needle. The result of this patient approach is a beautiful textured representation that brings depth to her art. 

Diana was born in Moscow, Russia, and moved to California at the age of six. Within this new life, she became a horse trainer, barefoot skateboarder and surfer. The surf culture and University pulled her to settle in Santa Cruz, where she worked with local start-ups and in Silicon Valley. Diana became a full-time artist in 2016.
