About

DIANE NEWCOMB 

My knowledge is of Graphic Arts, Prepress and Photography. My ambition is in eye pleasing Graphics that draw you in and capture your attention. I admire the arts and have combined my artistic background with technical skills.

I have worked in the industry for 13 years mainly as prepress which is valuable when designing and creating. I then went back to school to teach and had taken some portrait photography classes which has peeked my interest. Photography is something I have become to enjoy over the years, finding that moment of peacefulness that can be captured and displayed.

My knowledge and ambitions combined are what drives me to excel and be creative each day in some way!
