Ya’ll ready to have a good time?
My name is Diana Avila and I’ve been an artist, educator, and have had countless other jobs mainly in the teaching capacity. I have a bachelors in Visual Art Education and a masters in ESL (English as a Second Language). I have been an art educator in the Cleveland Schools for several years while also dabbling in other mediums as an artist. I love bouncing ideas off other artists and just creating whatever the mood lets me create. My expectation for art is rarely visual but rather an emotional outcome. No matter how simple or silly the art is, it makes me feel happy and content. It’s like my brain is on canvas so I don’t have to hold it in my head. The artists who influence me the most are my artist friends and the surrealists, Frida Kahlo and Salvador Dali. Outside of painting, I am also a mama to a child with special needs and advocates wherever and whenever I have the chance. Autism Awareness!!!
I am truly livin’ the dream.
