Diana Dean was born in Rhodesia and lived in England. She studied at the prestigious Bath Academy of Art between 1961 and 1964, where she was awarded a Diploma in Art and Education with a distinction in sculpture. She exhibited and was awarded prizes for her sculpture until 1973.
Diana moved with her family to Ottawa, Canada in 1975 where she took up painting (for practical reasons). Early in the 1980s, she moved to Salt Spring Island BC, where she remains today.
Diana Dean has created an impressive body of work. She takes her cues from the Old Masters in regards to subject, scale and composition, creating pictures that are allegorical in nature, yet modern and poignant. Her strong identity with the place in which she lives is coupled with her equally strong family sensibility, and is expressed clearly in her work.
Diana Dean is represented in many important corporate, private and public collections in Canada and the USA.
