Headshot-V11.png

Diana Herrera (she/her) is a lighting designer located in Southern California. Her roots are based in the warmth of sunny Los Angeles area where she was born and raised.  She is in the process of receiving her MFA in lighting design at University of California,  Irvine in Spring 2023.  She earned her BA in Theatre and Dance from California State University of Los Angeles. where she discovered her passion for lighting.  Within her time in the industry, she has designed over a dozen shows from theatre to dance. When Diana is not designing, you can find her assisting, drafting or mentoring.  Her professions have taken her to work with Syracuse Stage, East West Players, South Coast Repertory, Utah Shakespeare Company, Apples and Oranges, and Radiance Lightworks to name a few.  

Her passion lies in inspiring others the same way she was inspired by this craft. and when Diana is not immersing her life in lighting or theatre, you can find her embracing the beauty around her by painting, or admiring those dreamy SoCal sunsets. (which still involves lighting nonetheness).
