About me

Hi! My name is Diana and my professional background is in the Art Market.

I have a degree in Clarinet Performance, studied Art History in University and have a Masters degree in Art Market studies and management of related companies, all in Spain.

I moved to London after finishing my master’s degree and have held posts across the art world where I strengthened my knowledge of the commercial aspect of contemporary art with established artists and learned more about the avant-garde and experimental work of younger and emerging artists.

Following the birth of my daughter in 2017 I decided to change career and retrain as a web developer. This change was motivated by the possibility of using my creativity in a technical context and having an intellectually challenging job where the learning process is crucial.

Nowadays I am doing the Online Software Engineering Bootcamp at Flatiron School and I am busy creating a website using Bootstrap and writing a game registration web app for a local sports team’s website. For this last project I am learning a little bit of PHP and MySQL.

Before applying to my programming bootcamp I have been doing some readings and completing various online education courses in order to get the basics on HTML, CSS and JS. Here is a list of what I have done so far:
