About Diane Drescher

Diane Drescher's light filled landscapes straddle the line between traditional and modern. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and continued her art training at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Art Student's League of New York.

Travels to Europe over a 10-year period to research design trends for fashion projects provided an ideal opportunity to study the tradition of landscape painting in the museums of Paris and London. As a result, Drescher began refining her painting style using vivid colors, thick application of paint, and distinctive brushstrokes.

Drescher resides in New York city and has found inspiration for her recent paintings in the urban landscape, specifically the High Line, the public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan's West Side. Her other subjects include the bridges and waterfront of New York City as well as the seascapes of Long Island and the landscapes of the Catskill Mountains and Hudson River.
