Diane is well known and respected in the photographic scene in Quebec, and is often invited to give lectures. Born communicator, she published articles for professional photographic magazines.

Since she became a grandmother (five times rather than one), Diane is happier than ever. As you will see during your visit, her trademark is the smile and good humor.


In addition to bringing the best gift to Marc and Diane: giving them 3 lovely grandchildren called Noam, Leon and Olli, she delights them by finally joining the studio in an official way.

Graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Arts from the University of Quebec in Montreal, she brings a whole new expertise and creativity to the digital turning point taken by the studio for several years. She has created Renaissance Paintings, a unique range of paintings that unify painting and photography.
