Diana entered the California College of Arts and Crafts and experimented with printmaking and ceramics. By the end of her four years, she had initiated the course toward her present work.
Moving to S.F. in the early nineties, Diana made her way as a server in restaurants while cultivating her artistic vision. It was in one of theses restaurants she met businesswoman Maggie Nugent of Synergy Designs, a ceramics wholesale outfit. Diana began designing for Synergy shortly thereafter. Her tenure with Synergy sent her back to Hungary, a factory in Hodmezovasarhely (Beavertown) where the Diana Fayt collection was produced. The work was imported and sold in the U.S from 1998 until 2002.
Diana has continued to produce her own enigmatic, one of a kind work and has had solo shows in the U.S. and Tokyo, has been featured in several, American, European and Japanese publications and continues to sell her work here and abroad. She resides in San Francisco.
