Diana grew up outside of Chicago in Oak Park, IL. For many years, she studied ballet. Diana performed with Ballet Chicago as well as the Bolshoi Ballet at the Vail International Dance Festival. After deciding to focus her attention on the visual arts, Diana received a BFA in Printmaking and Drawing from Washington University in St. Louis and an MFA in Printmaking and Drawing from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.
Most of Diana's current creative research focuses on the intersection between art, craft and everyday life. She uses paper to create quasi-functional objects and pattern-based works. Recent solo exhibitions have been at Dynamo Expo in the Netherlands, Washington State University Pullman, and Arkansas State University. She also recently completed a public commission in Pinedale, WY.
Diana has been teaching since 2003 and is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Wyoming in Laramie where she lives her husband Shelby Shadwell and son Shepard.
