Hello! My name is Deana. I have been photographing, painting, drawing, designing, and creating since 2008. I recently graduated from high school and am currently studying at the Art Institute of Portland. I have found throughout this ever-pressing journey of life that this art is really best created in the throws of emotion, and that thought isn't really something that creates good art one hundred percent of the time. I have and continue to be published in online magazines, books, and other publications around the world before studying a single thing about cameras or photography in general.

I must say that physically studying photography and attempting to create a life out of it feels quite beyond me at this moment. It is strange to think that their can be any structure at all in art. It is difficult for me to grasp. I have lost my creativity with the structures of society, and have been traveling up and down the coast trying to get it back. I am lost in a transitional period.

I began my photography in 2007 with an old Canon Film camera and moved up to a digital Nikon D-40 in 2008. I now shoot with a Nikon D-90 and study photography and design in Portland.

    "The Beautiful and Talented Dia AKA Deana or D. I've known D for a couple years now and I have enjoyed her posts from the beginning. She is a fantastic artist who is able to catch the personality of a person in a shot, be they selfies or friends. As I've watched her skills progress with the development of her natural talent it has been a joy.
    I say that the best compliment that a person can give is if they look forward to when you post; I have always looked for Deana's posts."

    "Every single time I review Dia's photostream, I am reminded why her's is one of my very favorites. Her's is one of the first photostreams I check when logging on to flickr, because I can't wait to see what new beauty she has produced. Her creative mind and photographic poise and talent jump from each picture. Her talent is amazing and I can only hope to master the art of photography as well as she has at such a young age. Her talent should be praised and recognized."

Good luck Dia you have a lot of genuine support out here in Flicker world! Go for it!!
    All the best,

    "Deana is so creative and talented beyond her years! So many people lose their creativeness as they age, do everything you can to hold on to that! I hope you do something creative with your life and keep cranking out these lovely photos you're so good at."
