Born in Boston, MA, Diane Green now lives and paints in New York City. She runs a painting school in lower Manhattan. Diane's paintings are layered, detailed, and delicate. The figures she includes are abstracted from their context, forming a narrative that isn't fully stated. Her work explores a process of layering that searches for meaning, where the painting reveals itself. The meaning is suggested. She is very influenced by art from China, Japan, and India.
