Diana Cook grew up in Washington DC where she studied with master printmaker Lou Stovall. She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1985, with a major in illustration, and began her career as a book jacket designer for Harper & Row Publishers in Manhattan. In 1987 she attended Institute Supérieur de Peinture Décorative Van Der Kelen Logelain in Brussels, Belgium for an intensive six-­‐month course in faux marble, wood-­‐graining and trompe l’oeil.

Diana has been a professional decorative painter for 30 years. She has been commissioned to paint murals, decorative designs and faux finishes in residential and commercial interiors throughout the United States and internationally. Diana’s work was featured in The World of Interiors (February, 1992) and Architectural Digest (February, 2003). Throughout her career, Diana continued to create her own work, through experimentation with new materials and techniques. Her paintings, shadow boxes, copper mosaics and mixed media pieces hang in many private collections.

Diana moved to Richmondville, NY in 2008 after renovating the old village firehouse that serves as her home and studio. She devotes her time to making art, working in her garden and hiking in the hills that surround her home with her sidekick, Oscar.
