|Dianne Panarelli Miller
Never one to take the easy way out, Dianne Panarelli Miller studied art for 10 years in college, private classes and ateliers and has painted tirelessly for 30 more years to develop her craft. Not wanting to paint like anyone else she worked hard to paint in her own voice from life and not photographs. Enduring long hours, bartending for 17 years and bringing up her daughter, Dianne still managed to paint full time. Her work proves that hard work with her versitile stunning and very real artwork.
Dianne was born in Quincy, Massachusetts in the early 60's. After graduating Braintree High School, she received a diploma at Vesper George College of Art. There she met and later studied intensively with Robert Cormier until she began at the R. H. Ives Gammel Atelier established by Cormier and Robert Douglas Hunter in Gammel's honor. She studied the traditional way to paint, in the "Boston Tradition", full time year round for five years. David Lowery and Robert Moore were also included in the roster of impressive teachers.
While studying at the Atelier and being surrounded by the art galleries of Newbury Street and museums of Boston, she discovered the type of artist she wanted to be and began her quest to be one.
Dianne has received may awards locally and nationally in the thirty years she has been painting and is represented in many fine galleries as well as in hundreds of private collections. Recently, her oil painting "Blue" was accepted to a the National Endowment show in Naples Florida. She is well known on the South Shore and is a signature member of the New England Plein Air Painters and has the distinguished honor to be awarded "Copley Master" at the Copley Society in Boston. She is also a member of the Portrait Society of America and Oil Painters of America.
She is comfortable doing portraits and landscapes as well as murals and cityscapes. Painting full time, she accepts the challenges each subject brings with excitement and vitality.
