The Artist Says:


People call me one of the hardest working artist they know. I know this is somewhat true. I have worked so hard because I have discovered what good art is and strive to do it myself. I believe it will take every minute I can muster to paint the best paintings I am capable of. I love what I do and humbly take on the challenge to better my work. If I am not painting, I am reading about painting, or studying paintings or thinking about what I will do next. It is my true love and enjoy every minute of what I do. I hope I live to a very old age so I can keep striving to produce the most wonderful paintings!
Dianne Panarelli Miller

Collectors Say:


“It is such a joy to have Dianne’s paintings in my home. Her enthusiasm and love of nature are so well expressed in her colorful landscapes and her portraits radiate the spirit of life. Her work draws me in to her positive world and enhances mine.”
Sandra Pollock

“Dianne’s paintings have a “sense of place”  that few artists achieve. With a few simple strokes Dianne created a snow covered pine that makes me long for winter whenever I look at it. “
Bill Pollock




Dealers Say:


Dianne's paintings have a freshness and spontaneity  that can be achieved only by painting "en plein eir" (outdoors, from life).  Her Boston School training is immediately apparent in her wonderful drawing ability and in her clear compositions.  Every picture has "unity of effect" as Boston Master Robert Douglas Hunter calls it.  The viewer can at once get a single, clear sense of her goal, even though the painting may contain a number of passages.  And, of course, her accurate depiction of the natural effects of light, through the use of color, is what separates her paintings from so many others.  Dianne's Boston roots also play a definitive role in her Boston scenes.  She is able to capture the atmosphere and the essence of the city, even on an 8" x 10" canvas.  Her love for her work shows in every piece.

Bob Totaro, J Todd Gallery owner in Wellesley, Ma 




Other Artists Say:


"Even as far back as art school in Boston I remember being in awe of Dianne's work. Everything she did was impressive and she would make it look so easy. Today, nothing has changed, her landscapes, portraits and studio work captures a real sense of time and place. Her confidence in both her medium and subject comes across effortlessly and showcases her true talents. I look forward to following her efforts for many years to come."
Brian Blood

Dianne is a master painter who's love and excitement for painting not only shines through in her stunning work, but in the lives she touches. Her unending drive to share her passion is astounding. I owe Dianne a debt of gratitude for her selflessness that led me on my own path.

Biography


   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 35 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 grew up in Braintree and 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 five 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 [...]
