My name is Diana Luckysova. I was born in the Soviet Ukraine and moved to United States at the age of 22. I’ve painted since childhood and pursued a career as a professional photographer for 14 years before I finally decided to take the plunge and become a full time sculptor. I work with a mixture of industrial materials, glass and the oil painting medium to create my sculptures.
Throughout my life I’ve explored an eclectic range of experiences, hobbies and education. I received a master’s degree in philosophy, learned to play chess at age 36, studied martial arts, and traded on the US stock exchange. I owned Luckysova Studios Gallery in Old Town, San Diego, won the first place in an international fine art photography competition, built websites, designed jewelry and clothing, and traveled, most recently to Angkor Wat, Cambodia, where I married my husband, Drew. We currently live in Mexico where I volunteer at a local orphanage.
Life has been a crazy but wonderful ride. The hardest part was growing up in Ukraine. That experience has shaped my personality and how I communicate with the world through my art.
My works can be currently seen in Balboa Park, San Diego at the Sculptors Guild gallery.
