Donelli (Dan) J. DiMaria and Diane M. DiMaria are an artist couple who live and work in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Dan is primarily an oil painter and Diane is a fiber artist. Their primary training in classical art techniques came at the 'Reilly League of Artists' in White Plains, New York under the direction of Cesare Borgia (now deceased). The couple now work full time as professional artists and teachers in New Mexico.
Dan has shown in galleries across the US for the past 13 years and participated in fourteen museum shows over the past four years. Articles about his paintings have appeared in 'American Art Collector', 'American Artist', and 'the Artist's magazine'. In 1998, his figurative work was showcased in 'The Best of Portrait Painting' by North Light books. In addition, he has participated in over 80 juried and 30 invited shows across the US including Oil Painters of America, Academic Artists, Internatioal Guild of Realism, Salon International, American Artist's Professional League, Hudson Valley Art Association, Masterworks of New Mexico, and Allied Artists receiving many awards along the way. Also, he has taught workshops on the 'Reilly Drawing Technique' in the Southwest US. In 2009, he taught both figurative and introductory drawing classes at the Santa Fe School of Art (now defunct). He currently teaches figure drawing and oil/acrylic painting out of his studio in Santa Fe, NM.
In 2008, Diane won the 'Best of Show' award in the Northern New Mexico Quilter's Society show. She has also had two of her fiber art pieces accepted into the international quilting shows in Paducah, KY (2008 and 2010) and in Houston, TX (2010 and 2011). Diane has conducted drawing classes for fiber artists in Santa Fe, NM over the past several years.
Also in 2010, Dan and Diane published a drawing manual for their students called 'Figure Drawing from Life: Tools, Techniques, and Tricks' which is sold through the 'Artisan' stores in Santa Fe, Taos, and Albuquerque, NM and on the internet through 'Lulu' (www.lulu.com/spotlight/DJDiMaria).
