Diana Ovtchinnikova

Growing in the family of an artist and a teacher definitely taught Diana to appreciate Visual Art and Education. 

Since her arrival to Canada in 2003, Diana worked really hard to turn her passion for Visual Art into a carrier.  

In 2008, an unexpected offer from a professional children entertainer came in, and she became a face painter. It was her very fist step into the world of media and production. Just one year later, Film and TV industry shocked Diana’s fun and relaxing work routine with its endless opportunities and highly artistic and mind twisted professionals. Fascinating journey from Office Management through Special Effects and Makeup to Production Designer wrapped her whole life in a fast paste and highly artistic vortex. While working for Children Production and Media Company, Diana took Special Effects and Makeup Artistry in Film and TV's Course at Seneca College and completed it with honors. She is proud to have well known Corporations on her credit list, such as: Disney, CBC kids, TVO, Cirque du Soleil, Rogers TV,  Mar Vista, Netflix, to name a few. At the same time, in 2015, Diana started her own business “DIO Make-up Studio” that provides education and corporate services for private businesses and schools in the GTA.
