Artist Statement:

I am a photographer first. Everything about the way I see and even image things is directly related to the way my eyes frame a picture as if I were looking tbrough a lens. When I venture beyond film into other mediums I consider myself a conceptual artist in that I enjoy exploring ideas and then manifesting them into material images. -Diana Lyn, Los Angeles, 1996
