Northwest Archaeological Illustration

About the Illustrator

In 2009 Diana Izdebski completed her Bachelor of Arts degree with Archaeology major at Simon Fraser University, Canada. She first ventured into the realm of visualization in archaeology while attending field school in Sliammon on the northwest coast of BC. It was here she utilized her web design skills to help develop the Sliammon & SFU Heritage and Archaeology Project website.

During an internship at the Bishop Museum in Hawaii Diana began illustrating artifacts for publication. Combining her long-time passions for art and archaeology was just the start; she also drew upon her extensive knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to produce high-resolution digitally enhanced illustrations.

While work tends to keep her in the office she is always eager to get into the field to complete on-site artifact and reconstructive illustrations. She has completed field work in Canada and the South Pacific and conducted illustration workshops at the Keatley Creek field lab in Lillooet, BC.

Diana currently lives on beautiful Bowen Island, BC where she illustrates from her home office.
