Diana Baumbach is a visual artist based in Laramie, WY where she serves as an Assistant Professor of Art (Foundations) at the University of Wyoming.

Diana grew up outside of Chicago. For many years, she studied ballet, performing with Ballet Chicago and the Bolshoi Ballet at the Vail International Dance Festival. After deciding to focus her attention on the visual arts, Diana received her BFA from Washington University in St. Louis and her MFA from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

Most of Diana's current creative research focuses on the intersection between art and design. She uses paper to create quasi-functional objects and pattern-based works. In 2010, Diana was selected as an artist in residence at ARE Holland in Enschede, the Netherlands. She has recently had solo exhibitions at Dynamo Expo in the Netherlands, Penn State Altoona, and Whittier College. Diana also maintains an interest in curation and alternative exhibition spaces. While living in Southern Illinois, she directed a Gallery Thirteen13 from within her home. Since moving to Wyoming, Diana has managed Gallery 211 and the UP Gallery on campus.

Diana has been teaching since 2003. Prior to coming to UW in 2007, she taught for one year at Brehm Preparatory School and for three years at Southern Illinois University as a graduate student.
