About Diana Stelin

Brookline, MA

Diana Stelin is an award-winning Boston-based landscape artist, who creates conversations between reality and abstraction. Her palette knife paintings have been on display at corporate spaces like Google and Novartis. Her work has been a part of numerous art fairs around US, with her colorful impressionistic abstract landscape art is in dozens of private collections worldwide. Stelin's work is notable for its "melting'' elements on canvas.


Stelin's life took her on many journeys. She left Kishinev together with her family at the age of thirteen. She found art as solace in her difficult teen transition. Her unique free-flowing painting style got her accepted into an Ivy League institution, Cornell University. The world of art stayed with her when she took a detour to manage an art gallery chain, DTR Modern Galleries.

After her second child, she started another business, a teaching art studio, The Plein-Air Art Academy. Soon after she had her third child, it received a Best of Boston award for art classes for kids, and is going strong even in today's online environment.

Artmaking keeps Diana balanced, grounded and less overwhelmed in today's life, and is her primary focus.

During the quarantine, Ms. Stelin's creativity led her to launch another leg of her practice, a luxury fashion line, Gallerista, that transforms her paintings into unique prints on high quality organic fabrics and further, into exquisite limited edition pieces for a creative woman.
