Deborah Diana has been an avid artist since childhood when she used the Philadelphia sidewalks and brick walls of her home as her canvas. She attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts where she studied the human figure.
Diana is known for her vivid paintings of butterflies and their journey of transformation. She taught art classes at her own studio and at a private school in Pennsylvania for 20 years.
In addition to creating traditional artwork, she competed in the world of bodybuilding, sculpting her own body into a work of art. In 1980, she competed in the National Capitol Championships, the first women’s bodybuilding competition in the DC region, and came away with first place.
