About Diona

I am an artist at heart and enjoy developing our future artists and creative trend-setters in the areas of Fashion, Graphic Design and Illustration. As an entrepreneur and an adjunct Professor at Philadelphia University, I am fully aware of what it takes to help shape the artistic minds of our students and to help them prepare for their future. I have over 10 years experience as a designer and over 7 as an undergrad adjunct Professor. I have a BS in Fashion Design with expertise in computer aided design programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Some of the courses I have instructed are Drawing Essentials, Fashion Figure Drawing, CAD for Fashion Design and Intro to Digital Imaging.

As an artist and art instructor, I emphasis the importance of practice and keeping a sketchbook or journal. So I often give homework that will challenge and help to sharpen the skills you need to succeed. Please notify me as soon as possible if a cancellation is necessary. Please be mindful that there is a 24-hour cancellation notice policy. We can work something out if a class needs to be rescheduled.

I am available for one-on-one tutoring as well as group sessions. Lessons are taught out of my Office. I am open to traveling on a case by case basis.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Definitely Diona. Definitely.

Diona was very helpful and knowledgeable about Illustrator and provided considerable patience for someone new to the software. Additionally, she is generous with her time as evidenced by the fact that the meeting was only going to be one hour, but she offered to extend the meeting without hesitation. She enjoys her work and enjoys helping others.
