Diana Viacheslavovna Walsworth’s love for the outdoors have put her in situations where she has been chased by sea lions, checked out by a great white shark, gobbled with turkeys and strolled in the forest with a rattlesnake. Such experiences are the inspiration for her work.
Diana was born in Moscow, Russia and moved to California at age 6. In this new life, she became a horse trainer, barefoot skateboarder and surfer. The surf culture pulled her to settle in Santa Cruz where she would earn her degree in Environmental Economics from UCSC and later work in Silicon Valley and with local start-ups. She’s now done a 180 and is pursuing a career in fine art.
