Dianne is an award-winning, Boston-based "Plein Air Painter" of color and light and is a signature member of the New England Plein Air Painters and a "Copley Master". Her approach combines the classic atelier training of the "Boston School", a mastery of technique with her own personal style expressed through the harmony of color and design.
The original Boston School way of painting seeks to combine the truth of impressionist color with good drawing, sound composition and skillful paint handling. It's leading exponents included Edmund Tarbell, Frank Benson, William Paxton, Joseph Decamp, Philip Hale, R.H. Ives Gammell. Gammell was a turn of the century Boston Museum School pupil of the first three men and later consulted with Paxton. Robert Douglas Hunter and Robert Cormier (with whom Miller studied) were students of Gammell. David Lowery and Robert Moore, also students of Gammell rounded off her studies.
