Artist Spotlight: Diana Simon

Artist Spotlight: Diana Simon

Diana Simon is a mother, psychologist, and artist living in southern California.  She attained degrees in Psychology and Educational Psychology at California State University, Long Beach, and University of California, Santa Barbara, and practiced as a psychologist from 2009 to 2016.  She was diagnosed with multiple autoimmune diseases in 2011, and is a parent to two children, one of which is on the autism spectrum. Although she has produced artwork for private collections for years, she only began to reach out publicly since 2016.  Her artwork often takes a critical view of social, psychological, and cultural issues; however, the ultimate goal of each piece is to find something beautiful that the viewer can enjoy. Her piece ‘Strong Tea’ can be found in Epoch Issue 01: Beginnings, available to purchase here.

Where do you find inspiration?

The inspiration for this piece was the BLM movement in general, and the strong black women in my life specifically.

Why do you create Creative Non-Fiction? 

I create art to express myself, process strong feelings, and to feel like I have a place in the world 

What are you reading now? (If you aren’t reading anything, let us know what other art you’re consuming) 

I’m currently reading The Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

Where can we follow you and find your work?
