Diana Wong has a long career as a painter, mixed media artist, curator, and educator. Beginning in the 1990's, Diana's work began to reflect her interests in Eastern philosophies, such as the I-Ching, culminating in a unique East-West aesthetic whose subject is the universal human experience. She believes: "art creation is a process of infinite possibilities. It also can be mystical when the creation becomes something bigger than the artist herself."
