Diane Wilson studied art at Washington and Lee University in Chestertown, MD and pursued her Master’s degree in fine art at the American University in Washington D.C. She credits the late Robert D’Arista for his contribution to her talent.
“Diane teaches drawing and painting at the Washington Studio School, in Washington DC. The Washington Studio School is in a beautiful old rowhouse on S Street, NW, in the Kalorama neighborhood, steps from Connecticut Avenue, and Dupont Circle.”
With that introduction, take a look at her work. I reacted to it by saying this is classy and is truly representative of abstract figure painting. It is classic.
Then, she walked me around the corner to introduce another figure painter, Ann Deutermann. Wow, I was struck by her incorporation of color and design among a series of related paintings. Together, it is a collection that patrons would be hard to break up, like breaking up a family.
These two artists are inspired and their work is a direct reflection of their personalities, both being trained and disciplined though executing differently.
