Diana Bahr


I graduated from OCAD University with a BFA in Drawing & Painting, and University of Toronto with a Masters of Education in Developmental Psychology & Education. Whether I'm exploring ancestral memory through photography and wax, or appreciating the patterns of symmetry through large-scale oil paintings of chandeliers and kaleidoscopic imagery, my work brings together my passion for science and art.
