Dia always liked being creative from a young age, enjoying sewing, knitting and hand embroidery, and became very interested in Modern Art as a teenager.

After retirement, she has reconnected with this creativity and decided to investigate other media to increase her skills. She likes strong colours, shapes and abstract images and her current work, exploring different media, reflects that, as well as her early interest in Modern Art.
