Diane has always been working on several creative fields, from print to web design, from storyboarding to directing video clips, from photography to drawing.

From 2016 to 2020, she has been collaborating with artist Theodore Psychoyos. Together they formed Diane & Théodore and have been exhibiting the MythoErotics project, a drawing study on love through the prism of erotism and mythology. Their exhibition has toured in NYC, L.A., then Paris and are presented in Aphilo Athens.

For the past five years, Diane has been developing her sculptural work, in clay and porcelain, marking a point on her ongoing journey, started at a very young age at the feet of a grandfather storyteller, in search of meaning and inspiration in myths and mythological symbolism. As a child, she felt an early connection to what adults would call “inanimate objects”. Trees, rocks, plants exuded a vibration she could feel. She started her pagan conversation in silence, without dissociating animal, vegetal and mineral from human. “Everything seemed to me like held together by a same emotion”.

Her work is shown in Athens at the Athens Cycladic Museum‘s boutique, Aphilo,  Mon Coin Studio, Ioanna Liberta jewelry store, Heroes, as well as in Taxidi Tinos, More Than This and Act As If in Antiparos, Casa Alma in Paros. Some of her pieces can also be seen in Zacharitza 27, the new design home created by Molonglo, for which she has been curating artworks and selecting furniture, along with Théodore Psychoyos.
Her last large commission can be seen at Manna, a five star hotel in the region of Arcadia.
