DIANA VENTURA

Diana Ventura brings a cutting poetic voice that reflects both a fresh and on-point perspective about  her childhood years spent in the Dominican Republic,  New York, and Texas.

Her disarming youthfulness  leaves audiences unguarded when she delivers a deceptively experienced lyricism with the maturity of an aged humanitarian soul. A poet, artist, and singer, she began expressing her varied artistic interests from an early age.  Heavily inspired from her life experiences, culture, colors, and family, Diana's Latin roots and upbringing permeate themselves into her poetic and visual imagery. She has performed and exhibited work in venues and art galleries in Houston and other Texas cities.
