Diane Black is an accomplished and prolific painter, as well as a gifted teacher. Most days she can be found quietly working in her studio on drawings inspired by other works of art, as well as a seemingly endless well of portraits of men and women out of her imagination. Black is intrigued by many different subjects and interprets them with her own unmistakable style. She has also developed her own signature wood-burning technique, translating her paintings into textured reliefs, which stand on their own, and have also become part of a number of collaborations with her husband Earl. Black is a member of Spindleworks, a non-profit organization for artists with disabilities in Brunswick, Maine. Black is generous with her talents, and enjoys the opportunity to teach at Spindleworks and in the community.
