Diana Diriwaechter's Swiss education and traditional Swiss upbringing was practical and business oriented; however art in all its forms has always been a motivating factor in her life. In the US she chose special effects and computer animation as her career and graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Computer Art. After working for several years in advertising she landed a job at the academy award winning Blue Sky Studios.
Working at Blue Sky Studios as a lighting and materials technical director on 3D animated motion pictures such as, "Robots", "Ice Age: The Meltdown", and "Horton Hears A Who", gave Diana a cinematic approach to photography. Since then the camera lens has become her tool of expression in portraits and landscapes. Whether on location or working from her studio in Harlem, Diana explores life with her eye through her lens.
