I was fortunate enough to have taught Diana... I was always greeted with a great interest and sensitivity upon engaging her in a critique. I admired very much her ability to ingest and digest so quickly the methodologies presented to her here at the school, and enjoyed her engaging manner... Overall Diana was a model of pleasant dedicated efficiency in the studio. I believe this is owned to her appreciation of the arts and her prolific studies of additional subjects... I find her to be roundly intelligent and diligent."
