Diana Carey – Visual Artist and Poet

Diana Carey – Visual Artist and PoetDiana is teaching expressive arts in the form of visual art and poetry to children and youth affected by child abuse and neglect. Diana is collaborating with Casa de Amparo, which provides therapeutic services for children removed from their homes because of abuse and neglect, and transitional housing programs for foster youth trying to establish stable lives as young adults. Diana believes “art by virtue of its nature is compellingly therapeutic”. Diana hopes that, by putting ideas and feelings onto a concrete surface, participants will develop a sense of self worth, learn they are not alone, and develop ways to express and interpret themselves positively. For the past fifteen years, Diana has received significant recognition as a visual artist and as a poet through awards, exhibits, artistic contributions and workshops. Her work is exhibited in public, private, and corporate collections. More information about Diana can be found at dgoth.net.
