Nice to Meet You!

I'm Diana, a.k.a. dfz, hence the name for my studio: dfzArtStudio. My love for artmaking started at an early age. After 20+ years of teaching Spanish and Art in private and public schools, I embraced a full-time art practice. 


In my home studio learning never stops. I paint and design.

Every art piece you see I create in the studio by hand, which I later digitized to create the surface designs you see in my shop.

My color inspiration comes from nature, the tropics, and the beaches of Puerto Rico where I grew up. 

My mantra is to be the creative mind ready to inspire and be inspired.
