Born in Bulgaria, Diana Ivanova and her family escaped from the Communist regime in power there at the time and through a series of fortuitous events found their way to Australia to live a life without ideological constraints. Since completing her studies at the University of NSW, Diana has split her time between London and Sydney.
Diana is an engineer, novelist and artist. She occasionally undertakes private commissions when a client makes it difficult for her to say no. Her original oil paintings are not for sale on the open market.
