Dianne was born with a hearing loss. Her disability didn’t stop her late mother from having high expectations for her during her formative years. While growing up at school, she always loved art — drawing, painting and handcrafting. In college Dianne had to decide what major to take. Since she enjoyed using the computer, she ended up following in her brother’s footsteps and getting a degree in computer science.
After working as a web designer / programmer, she began to realize her passion belonged elsewhere. In 2007, a good friend of her brother asked her to design a handmade wedding invitation. The design captured so much attention and enthusiasm that Dianne knew that this was what she was meant to do with her life… and she has been a freelance graphic designer for 8 years, first in the Philippines and now in the USA.
Through the years, it has been a pleasure for Dianne to work with her valued online customers both local and overseas including Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, United Kingdom, and Italy. In addition, with many of her customers being Filipino, her business could never have flourished without their support. It has always been a pleasure to provide services to fellow Filipinos all over the world.
In 2016, Crafts & Passion was born, creating custom designs that best reflect your imagination, with a level of professionalism and quality you won’t find elsewhere!
