Diana's artwork draws inspiration from keen observations of the natural world and a profound absorption of her daily experiences—capturing sights, sounds, and emotions. Her creative process aims to articulate the intangible, expressing what may be unseen by the naked eye but can be sensed through bodily sensations.

Throughout her artistic journey, Diana's practice has evolved through the exploration of diverse mediums, textures, and canvas shapes. In her recent paintings, Diana has introduced embroidery collages, influenced by her upbringing in the Lithuanian countryside where embroidery held a significant place in her life.
Delving into the process, Diana makes various shaped canvases and connects them into large compositions. These experimental shapes serve as guiding principles in Diana's painting. Unusual structures extend outward, disrupting the conventional wall space, while the surrounding areas infiltrate the constructed forms. These painted shapes are in perpetual motion, emphasizing the ever-changing nature and the dynamic interplay of energies.
