Our Leadership

Founder/Principal Artist

Ian Espinoza began his career in the architectural illustration field under the tutelage of his step-father, internationally renowned artist and illustrator, Carlos Diniz. Upon Carlos’ retirement, and with his blessing, Ian rechristened the studio “Ian Espinoza Associates Architectural Illustration” and since 1997 has continued the tradition of fine art architectural rendering and image design.
Ian has established himself as one of the most widely requested and recognized architectural delineators in the United States, and is noted by many top architects and developers as the artist to go to for winning competition entries, city board approvals and successful leasing presentations.
His work has been featured prominently in The Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes Magazine, the LA Weekly, the Los Angeles Daily News and the San Diego Union Tribune.  He continues to challenge himself by expanding on the traditional techniques to produce a style that better expresses the needs of contemporary architecture and visualization.

Executive Director/Principal Digital Artist

Carol has had a diverse career working in businesses of all sizes in the areas of management, finance, marketing, information technology, graphic design and digital imaging, and is an expert at organizational and systems design. Her background includes Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, live music venues and non-profit entities.

Overseeing the operation of the studio, including setting policy, financial management, marketing strategy and expansion programs, Carol also heads the Digital Division of IEAAI and leads the research and development of new mediums.
