Diane's career began in high school as the editor of the school paper. It morphed in college; she went from being a terrible artist to a fairly knowledgeable contemporary art reporter. Writing about art led to writing about beauty, beauty to fashion, fashion to features and much of this led to travel. Reporting, writing and editing have taken Diane from New Orleans to New York and back...now, her "beat" is the world. All the art training still comes in handy. She wants her readers to "see, feel and smell" the story through words and photographs.
