Diana Beltran Herrera
Diana Beltran Herrera (b. 1987, Colombia) is a designer and artist from Colombia currently based in Bristol, UK. After graduating from her MFA from UWE (University of the west of England) she has been developing her practice by researching ordinary materials.

Her practice develops around illustration, sculpture, design and photography, The most recurrent subjects in her work are nature, food and objects. Her delicate pieces are a display of vibrant colours, textures and compositions that highlight beauty and fragility with a high attention to detail.
